Old School Jared Gerszewski

By Collin Murray

Jared Gerszewsi is not what most would expect when they hear the term “campus supervisor”. I, for one, envision a big angry man taking up a role similar to that of a bouncer or a corrections officer. Although many do play into the stereotype, Jared always has a smile on his face and will ask you how you’re doing every day. Jared makes sure to not only supervise the campus, but also make sure that the students of Westmont feel comfortable and safe.
