In my role at Alma, I get most excited when...

students are able to discover themselves and their identities while feeling a sense of belonging at the school and in our society.

What I love most about Alma College is...

the drive from the students and faculty to make the world a better place.

I chose to work at Alma College because...

I love that in this small college setting, we’re able to stay connected while still meeting new people.
