The basement is filling back up with talented new hires to guide our student body.

Enter, Laura Walsh.

 

What is your official job title?

Academic Advisor

 

What does your typical day look like?

Not sure if there are "typical" days, but I generally spend my days working with students during appointment times to discuss classes, registration, personal concerns, and such.  The remaining time could be filled with staff/departmental meetings, professional development opportunities, emails, and networking to make connections across campus and departments so I can better help my students.

 

What is the question you hear most often from students?

So far, I have fielded a lot of questions regarding graduate school applications, or which are the "best" classes to take.

 

Where is your favorite place to eat on campus?

I always love a good Murphy's burger.

 

Do you have any hobbies?

My husband and I have an extensive board game collection, so we spend a lot of time gathering with friends and playing games.  I also enjoy cooking, baking, reading, puzzles, and traveling.
