Olivia Seifert

Hometown: Park Falls, Wisconsin - and happy to be back in northern WI after some time in Ohio and Michigan!
 
Department or Office: Educational Leadership

Where did you attend college, grad school, doctoral school?: B.A. in Communication from the University of Minnesota Duluth; M.A. in Student Affairs Administration (Higher Education) from Michigan State University

Programs/services that you coordinate/provide (only list the names): I provide advising to both prospective and current teacher education students, and also advise the Future Teachers Association.

In one sentence what is your advice for students to be successful?: Take advantage of all the opportunities at your fingertips during college! Join a club, study away, learn a new sport, volunteer, attend events - all of these experience will enrich your time as a college student!

What is your favorite book?: I don't think I can narrow it down to a single favorite; I read a lot of nonfiction (memoirs, pop psychology, etc.). One of my favorite authors is Bill Bryson, who writes hilarious books about his travels.

One fun fact about you: I love music and sing in a local choir called Arrowhead Chorale!
