Dr. Douglass F. Covey, Vice President for Student Affairs, announced on December 9, 2014, the selection of Melissa Buchheit as Director of Recreational Services.

A native of Savannah, Melissa earned her BS in Health, Physical Education and Recreation from Armstrong State College.

She received her MA in Exercise Science from Georgia State University.

Following an internship, she joined the Rec Department as Intramural Coordinator in 1989 and subsequently served as Fitness Coordinator, Fitness Specialist, Associate Director for Programs and Interim Director. In 1991, she was chosen as a Sparks Award recipient in recognition of superior service to the campus community.

“This is a fitting culmination to her many years of service in the department and I have great confidence in her leadership for the future. Not only does she have great expertise in her field, but no one could rival her passion for the work or her dedication to Georgia State University.”
