West Windsor, N.J. – Marlene Snyder ’81 (A.A.S., Secretarial Science) is a proud Mercer alumna. Enrolling at MCCC directly after graduating from Hamilton High West, she says she got a great education at a reasonable cost.
After completing her MCCC associate degree, Snyder landed a job at Princeton University, where she was happily employed as an administrative assistant for 19 years.
Snyder says her job at Princeton was the highlight of her professional life. She worked in two different departments: as a secretary in the Center for Energy and Environmental Studies for nine years, and then as a technical research secretary in the Chemical Engineering Department for ten years. She was promoted several times over the years.
Retired since 2000, she recalls Princeton as a stimulating environment where she was able to grow professionally and personally. “I related really well to the professors I was working for and I did well at my job.”
