Meet Your Advisor
Title/s: Academic Advisor
While in college in California, Veronica fell in love with extracurricular opportunities in residence life, orientation, volunteerism, faith communities, and event planning. When she learned there were professional staff who coordinated the links between academic and extracurricular involvement, she knew she had found the right career path. Subsequently, she attended graduate school in the Midwest where she worked as an advisor for a federal TRiO program while earning her degree in College Student Development. Veronica worked in residence life on both coasts prior to coming to LUC. When not advising students, Veronica enjoys reading, taking photos, discovering cities on foot, playing tennis, exploring social justice issues, and searching for a perfect sandwich and cup of coffee.
"Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the ruthless, defend the orphan, plead for the widow."
~Isaiah Chapter 1, verse 17 (New American Standard Bible)
First Year Memory:
I lived on campus my first year with a roommate I had never met. Leading up to move-in day, I had visions of the two of us being best friends from the start. On move-in day I arrived to our room first. When she finally arrived, she and her family dropped off her belongings and she said, "Hey, I'm going back home but I'll be back for classes." As a result, I was alone in our room for the entirety of Welcome Week. The first night I was disappointed and lonely, but awoke the next morning ready to challenge myself to seek out friends by connecting with people in my residence hall, my classes, and campus organizations.
