History in EVE University

Personnel Officer

Student Advisor

When the Student Guidance Department was set up Laura also volunteered as one of the first group of Student Advisors, helping to direct EVE University students around to the various programmes and campuses that EVE University offers, as well as having stern words over silly killboard losses. This department no longer exists.

Assistant Personnel Manager

On 28th April 2013 Laura became an Assistant Personnel Manager to Rose Chanlin. When she became an Assistant Personnel Manager she decided to step down from her duties as Student Advisor, because she didn't feel she could contribute the required attention to the role.
