Tammy Larkin and Lisa Kumm have worked at the Starbucks in Centennial Hall for seven years. Larkin explained why she works here. “I work here for the kids. I do. It makes me feel young. When I see someone come in and they smile, or if they’re havin’ a bad day I try to make it better for ‘em. But you guys are the main reason I’m here. It’s not for the money,” said Larkin. 

“I started at Cyber Cafe and then I worked in Murphy’s Mug for five years before coming here. I like coffee. I like working here. Sometimes after working nine and a half hours gets long. But I like it,” said Kumm.
