Favorite CSC Event of the Year: Open House in September! (And yes I do coordinate it...and yes it is awesome...and no you don't leave without at least getting some free food and giveaways)
Beverage of Choice: Hello, my name is Bethany and I am a diet coke addict...
Traveled outside of the U.S.?: Mexico and it's a long story...
Favorite Season: Winter (don't judge me!)
Wish all students knew: You don't have to know what you want to do with the rest of your life...TODAY
Wish I would have known when I was in school at MU: Go to classes!, join more organizations and participate in events, and what you plan on going to school for isn't necessarily what you will enjoy most
Best thing about the CSC: The people! We are willing to help students and alumni succeed and have amazing student workers and interns to also help.
Most excited for in the 2009-2010 school year: I'm having my first baby in November! (although 3 others have had a baby recently...so not big news around here!)
Biggest lesson I've learned from meeting with MU students: Each path is different, each personality is unique, and each person is inspiring in some way
Favorite item in my office: (besides the Dwight bobblehead) I love our new student giveaways for this year - fancy business card holders!
Liaison to which college: College of Communication (which if I HAD to go back to school, I would also major in Communication Studies)
Something NEW I'm in charge of this year: e-news!!! You will be seeing videos in this year's e-news...probably more of us than you want to see!
What I'm most excited about today?: Students are moving back in...Love that time of the year!
