I enjoy working in admission because?
Working in admissions means everyday is an opportunity to change a life. Young men and women are making decisions that will ultimately shape their journey into adulthood. Thus, interacting with people who are making life altering decisions is not only exciting, but it is also a challenge. Embracing this challenge is what I enjoy. I am able to assist those who want to better themselves in all aspects of their life. Furthermore, working admissions at Wittenberg University provides me a chance to give back to a university that has molded me into the person I am today.
My favorite place on campus?
The Rosencrans Fitness Center and Heinzen Strength Center are my favorite places on campus. They both are not only state of the art exercise facilities; they are areas of campus where every student, faculty member, or administrator can go to lose themselves in a workout. Sweat washes the stress from each person which is much needed on a college campus. Both of these areas are stress free and this allows for positive interactions. I love these two areas of the Wittenberg campus. Nothing is better than a good sweat.
My hobbies consist of sports, exercise, family and friends. I am a huge football, basketball and baseball fan. I shamefully do not have any favorite teams; I follow players more than I do teams. Nevertheless, a daily dose of ESPN is always needed. Besides sports, I like to exercise and spend quality time with my family. But something not a lot of people know about me is that I enjoy all kinds of music. Music, any kind of music, is a stress reliever for me.
What I look for in a student?
A good work ethic is what I look for in a student. If a student is willing to put force the time and energy for their future, then I am all for them. I was once told that: “Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work” (Thomas Edison). I truly believe this quote applies to a college student. Every day in college is chance to shape the future, and I get excited about those students who grasp all the opportunities in front of them. Also, enthusiasm and ambition are qualities I look for in a prospective student.
