David Katz, Treasurer

Briefly describe your role.

I am responsible for the acceptance and appropriate recording of the monetary transactions that take place around the campus. I work with all departments that handle money and implement secure and smooth financial transactions.

What is the function of your department?

The Treasurer’s Office is essentially the bank of the College. We handle and record the payments that come in from students, parents, businesses, etc. and record the appropriate revenue. We also handle legal residency, collections, Perkins Loan Accounting, departmental deposits, and some tax issues. It is never dull.

How long have you been working at the College?

Since 2005 – just over eight years.

What brought you to the College?

I moved to the Lowcountry in 2004, getting away from the cold and snow in New York. I had a similar position with one of the SUNY schools and jumped at the chance to get back into college work.

What do you like most about your job?

I really enjoy the people that I work with and the students and parents that we deal with every day.

What are some of your favorite memories from the College?

I have been here for two Presidential elections and love the political circus on campus. I am also a sports fanatic and have some great memories from attending the games.

What are your hobbies and interests?

I enjoy music, especially classic rock, and have played guitar since I was a teenager. In sports I follow the Mets, football Giants and NY Knicks. I’m a diehard NY sports fan.

What is something that your colleagues would be surprised to learn about you?

Most people don’t know that I was in the Beatles temporarily after Paul McCartney left.


Or that I was one of the inspirations for Mount Rushmore.


And I played basketball in the Olympics.
