It's Midterm Season!

It’s hard to believe that the semester is already halfway over. This has been the fastest semester of my life to date, but it has also been the busiest.

Grad School Jitters

You always hear the old cliché that time flies, but you never really believe it until it actually hits you. It feels like just yesterday I was starting my college experience.

The Best Job on Campus is at Base Camp

Often when I first meet parents either on campus or in the community, their first question is, “What do you do for MU?” The reply for me is easy, “I have the best job on campus!” Describing that job is a bit more complicated, because between the wide array of services offered in the Student Success Center (SSC), and the diversity of our work, it is hard to recap in just a sentence or two.

I have used a variety of metaphors over the years to describe what happens in our department, ranging from…
