  1. Thank you for this tribute to a great co-worker, Eduino Torres. If you care to understand what makes BU a great institution, spend some time with Eduino. He never faces a challenge
    with a list of reasons why it cannot be met; his attitude is “there is always a way”, and he applies that perspective every day on the job. If you’ve ever been on the edge of an event with 1,000 people in the audience and ready to start, only to have something go terribly wrong, Eduino is who you want with you. He gets it done! And it’s not just the “can do” attitude, it’s the smile that goes with it! My own time here at BU has been greatly improved by Eduino’s determination and hard work, and by his smile and his kind words at the low points. I can’t imagine the place without him…

  2. Eduino is the GOAT! He is the reason behind so many successful and memorable events in the GSU. As a staff member who plans events, I am so grateful for the work he and his crew perform.

  3. Eduino is the greatest, we couldnt do what we do successfully without Eduino and his team! Congrats on well deserved recognition from the Dining Team!

  4. I am so happy to see Eduino recognized in this way for his outstanding work at the GSU. He is an amazing colleague and such a joy to work with…truly the best!

  5. Eduino and Lucy are some of the nicest people I have ever met in my LIFE, let alone at BU. So great to see them recognized here. Thank you Eduino for the hundreds of times over the years that you went above and beyond to help me, and all the times you made me feel like a part of a meaningful community!

  6. Eduino and Lucy are the best – not just outstanding at their jobs, but also unfailingly caring, helpful, and friendly, and always ready to share a laugh. I can’t imagine the GSU without them!

  7. I worked with Eduino and Lucy for many years. Always smiling, they are some of the nicest folks on the University’s campus. For those of us who dedicated 20 years or more of our lives working on the CRC, these friendships are what made coming to work each day so rewarding.

  8. Eduino and Lucy remain two of my favorite things about BU! They are wonderful colleagues, loyal friends, and have made me laugh more times than anyone else on this Earth. Thank you for doing this story!!! They are the best!

  9. What a wonderful tribute! He’s smile is his superpower! I can’t even begin to count all the times he’s saved the day! Eduino you bring out the best in all who know you! I’m so lucky to have worked with you.

  10. Such a joy to see this smiling face on my screen! Thank you BU Today for shining the light on these superstars in our community, and thank you, Eduino and Lucy, for being part of my BU family all these years.

  11. Congratulations Eduino, im glad that you are getting the reconigtion you deserve for all of your hard work, congratulations on your 28 years of service at
    Boston University. I remember when you came to work at the GSU area and all the help you and Jose, did setting up tables on the fifth floor for us for Phonothons back in the day

  12. I am so very thankful for the 1,000’s of events that Eduino and his crew setup during my 20 years at the GSU. Every event was important to him – no matter if it was the Prince of England or a student meeting. We always appreciated his teamwork and genuine smile. What a pleasure and privilege to have worked with him! Thank you, Eduino and Lucy for your dedication to BU!
