Cougar Query: "My favorite quote is 'Because of the empty tomb, there is no reason for an empty life'"

Name: Bill Cope

BYU employee since… 1988.

My job at BYU is… I work in the Office of IT and, in collaboration with others, spend my days enhancing and maintaining the Student Information System at BYU.

My favorite quote is… "Because of the empty tomb, there is no reason for an empty life."

I get most excited about my work when… I love to solve challenges, so identifying opportunities of how to make the student, faculty, staff and administrative experience with the SIS better so that teaching and learning can take place more effectively is what I get excited about.

My favorite TV show growing up was… I would come home from school each day and watch "The Flintstones" and "Gilligan's Island." There were a couple of Saturday morning shows, "The Banana Splits" and "Lancelot Link, Secret Agent Chimp," that were fun to tune in to also. When my colleagues read this they will say, “That explains a lot.”

Bill likes traveling anywhere as long as he has good company–his family.

The best-kept BYU secret is… the people we get to work with here. Remarkable people doing remarkable things. Things that are often unnoticed or unrecognized because they are behind the scenes.
