1: To our dear Sue, We could not pass up the opportunity to recognize your contributions to the College Student Affairs program at Penn State. As you read through our memories, we hope you'll see themes in the testimonies: themes of justice, love, advocacy, friendship belonging and family. THANK YOU for being all of those things and more for us. The lessons you taught are the ones we role model in our own personal and professional lives. When we echo you in word and action, we are your legacy.You mean so much to each of us. With gratitude, Your CSA graduates

2: Sue, I'm forever in your debt for the lessons that you have taught me, Thank you for all you did for me along my journey in the CSA program. Thank you not only the lessons in the classroom, but also thank you for understanding me as a student and mom. Because of you I'm a better Penn Stater and a better mom to Abby and Jackie. Love always, Erin

3: Sue, you are an inspiration! Thank you for never giving up, always seeking justice, and making a career out of what you are passionate about! I feel so lucky to have worked with and grown from you! Love, Rachel

I cannot adequately thank you for how much I grew while working with you at Penn State. I am a better person and professional because of you. With Care, Julie Sanzone - CSA Class of 2006

10: Sue, The words thank you are simply not enough. I remember the day you called me at my parent's house to offer me a position in the 2008-2010 CSA cohort and since then you have always been in my life. From day one, you empowered me, guided me, and truly took me under your wing. The amount of opportunities you provided me with and continue to provide me with are rewarding. It is a privilege to be so close to you and to know that I always have family in State College. You are an inspiration. You are a powerful person. You are so humble. You will be missed... With love and respect, Jordan CSA 2010

Trust me when I say, that our conversations and mentoring where not in vain. I wish you can see the person that I am today and I truly thank you so much, You will forever be in my mind and your legacy lives on through the lessons that you've thought me! Love you forever and always! Brian Mateo
