  4. Seeing a smiling picture of Shiney on BUToday was a wonderful start to my day! Thank you for highlighting this wonderful woman and guide to many in your article. Shiney was one of the first people that I met when I came to BU, and in her signature style, made me feel welcomed and part of the BU Community. Bravo, Shiney!!

  5. I have always believed that the Orientation Program is the jewel in the crown of BU and under Shiney’s leadership, the gem truly sparkles. It is nice to see you recognized for all your hard work. Congratulations and Happy Birthday!

  6. Professionally my department works closely with Shiney and I know first hand how much thought and effort she puts into every detail of her program. Personally, as the mom of a transfer student who was incredibly nervous about making the change, the entire Orientation organization could not have made her feel more welcome from the get-go. Well done Shiney

  7. I had the pleasure of working with Shiney while in my undergraduate studies and she certainly was one of the most influential people in my college career. Congratulations on this recognition and happy birthday to her!

  8. Happy birthday, Shiney! I had known about how hard you work, how much you care, the awesome energy you bring to all you do at BU and the impact you have on students and leaders. This wonderful article is also a tribute to the compassion and dedication you have for your family, and especially your parents. I was moved and inspired. Hoping you have a beautiful day and much joy in knowing how you are treasured.

  9. Congratulations, Shiney! Well deserved kudos and wonderful article! I remember you when.. Will never forget your friendly smile and positive attitude. Happy birthday and carry on. You really do make a difference in this world!

  10. Well deserved recognition and a joy to read a second time. An inspiration and guiding force to so many, congratulations and thank you Shiney!

  11. So many people reacted to today’s story with confusion as to how Shiney’s behavior could have persisted for so long. This article is all the evidence we need that the call is coming from inside the house. BU will protect James because acknowledging that they did nothing is ultimately an indictment of the entire system.
