Day in the Life: Federico Barela Oct01

Day in the Life: Federico Barela

As students, we take for granted that everything at the university has to work, be clean and organized. It is easy to forget that there are people who every day keep this university going and clean up the messes left behind. One of them is Federico Barela, a humble and laughing man from Chihuahua, who has been working here for three years. Besides working at the university, Federico Barela also works as a gardener after his shift at SFUAD finishes at 5 p.m. He also has three kids and a wife who he sees after working all day long. Usually the family sits together—along with coworker and friend Alfredo Amaya—and enjoy a self prepared meal...

Thanks to the efforts of SFUAD Director of Facilities Peter Romero and his staff, those who illegally park in these spots will be facing severe penalties. “We have new signs going up,” Romero explained. “The city of Santa Fe is imposing a $500 fine for violators, and we are instructing SFUAD security to call the police when they observe anyone violating the rule.” This was welcome news to someone like me.
