Mrs. McGovern is the backbone and glue of our office. She is the friendly face you see when you walk in, and the person who creates the warm and inviting atmosphere in our office! She loves meeting students, talking with them, and learning about all the great diversity each person adds to our community. Mrs. McGovern is an avid painter, dog lover, mom, wife, and grandmother of two active boys!
In addition to our full time staff, we also are thankful to have professionals, graduate assistants and interns who work 5-10 hours a week in our office and who assist in programming, advising, and overall student support!
