Finding a Passion for Higher Education: Suzie Chung

Suzie Chung is a senior majoring in International Business and she recently got accepted to UW-Madison's Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis graduate school program. She learned about this opportunity as she started working as a Lead Student for First Year Experience her sophomore year, and as a Resident
Assistant/Assistant Hall Manager for the Residence Life department here at
UW-Superior. Her interest in Higher Education and Student Affair grew throughout her time at this university, so she wanted to continue on this path into her future career, so she decided to apply for graduate schools.

Suzie strongly believes that every professional at UW-Superior helped her to be successful on every opportunity she had and that's why she became who she is now. She didn't know much about higher education and student affairs when she first started this journey at UW-Superior. As she became more involved, she was encouraged by those professionals to pursue her passion. Suzie credits them for helping her love of higher education grow. She wants to pass that wonderful experience on to other students by working in the field.

Suzie's advice to students:

  • Get involved in as much as possible on campus
  • Reach out for help from the many wonderful professionals that work at UW-Superior
  • Believe in yourself, that you can do it and you will do better
  • If you are unsure what to do, where to go, how to get anything done, do not give up! Just go to anyone who working in Yellowjacket Union and tell them what you are struggling with

Finally, she would like to thank Career Services because when she started her career journey about 3 years ago, she didn't have a resume or any other application materials and didn't know where to start. Career Services helped her through every step and now she has great a resume and cover letter that she can use for future job opportunities.

Career Services wishes Suzie the best of luck at Madison!
