While attending graduate school at Iowa State, I had two assistantships that allowed me to gain further experience in student affairs and higher education. One assistantship was with the College of Business in academic advising, where I advised students across all curriculums in the College of Business, taught BusAd 101 & 102, and supported college recruitment and retention efforts. My other assistantship was with College of Engineering in International Engagement where I co-coordinated the Engineering Mentors program and co-managed the study abroad course substitution project. While in graduate school at Iowa State, I also had the opportunity to assist with Greek Life and Learning Communities initiatives and help advise Business Council and BaconExpo.
