All University community members are invited to bid farewell to Sue Safve, marketing and communications, as she retires from her 44-year career on The Bluff. The reception will take place on Friday, February 27, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., in the Terrace Room.
The estimable Sue Safve began her career in 1971 in the print shop, without a specific position, and was soon operating and maintaining the old Addressograph machine used for mailings. She eventually became a printing press operator, was a paste-up and page layout artist, and got a great deal of satisfaction from waving an Exacto blade around. She did darkroom work, stripped negatives, and made plates, eventually taking up the typesetting side of printing by the learn-as-you-go style.
For the past 20 years she has mastered the art of desktop publishing and graphic design, essentially putting her mark on every publication, postcard, brochure, pamphlet, and program the University has produced for the past five decades. She now plans on traveling and puttering around in her SE Portland flower beds, no longer muttering “That &%$#@! Doyle” under her breath. We will miss her more than we can say.
