Amanda Zielinski Slenski

Amanda joined the library staff, as a student worker, mid-way through her years at Alma.  She was already involved in many campus activities when she interviewed with us.  She fulfilled various roles within residence life, was an office holder in the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE - now known as ENACTUS), and held another part time job on campus  We were lucky that she was able to squeeze us into her schedule!  We are happy and proud that Amanda has come back to Alma College to work as the Director of Admissions and be a great example of an Alma College graduate.

My Alma education

Got me to where I am today. I ended up at Alma unexpectedly and here I found a home and a family. It was an amazing experience that taught me so much. My experiences at Alma help me every day even in surprising ways. For example, I can fix a printer like a champ because of my work at the library!

My favorite place(s) on campus included

The library/Highland Java, the Alpha Gamma Delta house and Hamilton Commons.

My favorite professors(s) included

Professor Lemmon and Professor Baleja!

My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is

Opening Highland Java my senior year and my Spring Term to Argentina.
