What did you do before Augustana? I worked in Admissions with students and families from the Chicago Area for Missouri University of Science and Technology for 8 1/2 years.  

Why did you decide to work in this field and/or at Augustana? I had an incredible college experience and worked as a Student Telecounselor and Student Orientation Ambassador at SIUC.  I enjoyed working with students and families so much I decided Admissions would be a great career path.  Working for Augustana is an honor.  I feel so fortunate to work with passionate, well-rounded  students that want to make a difference in the world!

What advice do you have for students who are searching for the right college for them? Make it about YOU!  Where do you see yourself being most successful?  What academic program do you want to study?  What sports/activities/organizations are important to you?  What is your ideal distance from home?  How much personal attention from faculty do you want/need?  Finding a school that meets your "must haves" will put you on a path to success!  Beyond that...visit, visit and visit again to get to know the personality of all the schools you are seriously considering!
