People Behind the Scenes
People Behind the Scenes

Who keeps our university in top shape? It’s the People Behind the Scenes! Meet Matt Rhode, facilities coordinator for Aerospace Engineering Sciences.

What is one thing you would like people to know about the work you do?

It takes a really strange person to move furniture one day, design a lab renovation the next and finish off the week machining space flight hardware. It's a good thing for my department that I'm so weird.

What do you like best about being a part of the CU community?

Ralphie. Coolest mascot in the NCAA. Actually the eclectic mix of students, staff and faculty all with different personalities and projects makes for interesting days.

What is your favorite activity/interest outside of work?

There are activities outside of work? My two kids, wife and two dogs "chew" up most of my time.
