After 42 years on campus, Rose-Racine bids farewell
Nina Rose-Racine closed out a lengthy campus career Jan. 19 when she retired as the office manager in Asian Languages and Literatures.
She came to UMass as a student in 1970, graduated with a B.A. in Japanese and an Asian Studies Certificate in 1975, began work as the office manager for Asian Languages and Literature in 1975, and has been there ever since.
“I’ll miss a lot of the people that I’ve worked with over the years very much. Leaving the ‘work’ part of my years here is something that I can do. Leaving my colleagues is not easily done.”
She looks forward to learning how to garden, “a bigger task than you might think!”
