  • Responsibilities: My role as the College Navigator is multifaceted. I work with first-generation students as they go through the admission process at CSB/SJU. Then, after a student enrolls here, I serve as a direct resource for them throughout their time at CSB/SJU, particularly in the first year. In addition to this, I also work on a broader institutional level to create a stronger, more expansive support system for this growing population of students.

College Activities: 

I kept myself busy during my time as a student at CSB/SJU. I graduated Egregia Cum Laude in 3 ½ years as a member of Delta Epsilon Sigma and Phi Beta Kappa. But, it is important to remember college is about more than just academics, so I also participated in many other activities, clubs, and events.

I tried a variety of activities at CSB/SJU to find what I was truly passionate about. I spent time volunteering with CSB Campus Ministry, working in the English Department, and writing for The Record, our award-winning student newspaper.

Ultimately I landed on a few core areas that I spent most of my extracurricular time on. As a Theater Department scholarship recipient, I worked on one student production each semester. I was a Resident Assistant for 2 ½ years with CSB Residential Life. I pursued many of my social justice passions as the Women’s Empowerment Representative on CSB Senate for 2 semesters.

Coming to college at CSB/SJU allowed me to learn what I truly love in life and how I want to spend my life. I am so grateful for how CSB shaped me into the person I am and guided me to what I am truly passionate about.
My drive to pursue social justice makes this position working with first-generation college students a perfect fit for me because it offers me the opportunity to help truly extraordinary students excel.

Fun Facts about Hannah:
