What do you like most about working for the Student Advocate Office?
I enjoy many aspects of working in the Student Advocate Office. I’ve been an Online Student Advocate for 4 years and every day I am so thankful to have been given this opportunity. I have an extremely supportive Director and Associate Director and definitely feel personally invested in and cared for.
In return I am able to not only care for those I work with, but for the many students I come into contact with on a daily basis. The Lord continually reminds me that though my life may seem hard, there are others that are dealing with situations I couldn’t even imagine going through and this certainly keeps things in perspective.
This position allows a unique opportunity to minister to our students and let them know how much we care for each and every one of them. I have seen our office make a difference in many student’s lives and I am humbled to see the Lord work through us the way He does.
Favorite Student Success Story
A student contacted our office a few semesters ago with what seemed to be an impossible situation to overcome both personally and academically. Upon reviewing her situation, the Online Student Advocate Office was able to intervene and work with the student and with other departments to help her with her outstanding balance, provide assistance with the Financial and Academic appeal processes, and eventually ensure she was registered for classes. In the end she was able to continue with her program in spite of the impossibility of her situation and recently graduated with her Master’s degree!
