- College Student Personnel
During my first semester of college, I became a student ambassador for my admission office. In this role, I helped give tours, work admission events, and communicate with prospective students. I initially chose to work in this role because the admission staff had been crucial in my own college search, and I needed to have a source of income. As I continued working for the office, I started recognizing the valuable knowledge, skills, and experiences I was gaining. Many of those skills allowed me to successfully complete my degree and find success in future positions. Also, although I didn’t know it when I first started, my role in the admission office changed the path of my career completely and led me to where I am today.
When I began my work in higher education, I aimed to foster environments for students to achieve academically and to live authentic, purpose-driven lives. When looking at institutions that supported this mission, IUPUI stood out. Through walking around campus and talking with students and staff, I noticed that students are supported academically and personally, students and staff feel a sense of community, and innovation is supported if it can positively impact students. I am excited and proud to be part of this forward-thinking university that works to make every member of the community feel valued.
