Meet David Hermanson, MSUM’s new campus security officer. He’s on campus overnight to address issues and keep campus secure for all faculty, staff and students.
Q: What drew you to MSUM?
A: In previous experiences with MSUM, everyone I interacted with was professional and genuinely courteous. So, when I was looking to make a change, I looked to see if MSUM had any openings that I thought would be a fit for me.
Q: What do you like about working the overnight shift?
A: I don't know what I'll see each night. I put in a healthy amount of walking. I enjoy watching campus wake up.
Q: What made you pursue safety work?
A: I practiced law for over 22 years. The law and its procedures at various levels have been a part of my life for a long time. I like assisting people to both feel and be secure.
Q: How do you energize yourself at work?
A: I set realistic goals and try to reach them within the timeframe I set.
Q: What is your favorite season?
