My name is Elise Michaux. I attended Slippery Rock University for both my undergraduate and graduate studies. My B.A. is in English Literature and M.A. is in Student Affairs in Higher Education. Throughout my six years at The Rock, I was not just working inside of the classroom, but outside as well. I worked extensively alongside faculty, staff, and administration through my participation in different clubs and organizations in order to better the university for current and future students.
By having all those experiences, working on the college campus has become my passion. Those of us who decide to pursue higher education can attest to the invaluable learning and growth that takes place during the college years. I would like to be part of that for many students by working in the field academic advising. First-year students to seniors who need those three credits to cross the stage and shake the president’s hand, are the ones with whom I would like to work.
To sum me up: A young black woman aspiring to be noticed, not because of her lips, thighs or eyes, but because of what’s on her mind.
