Main responsibilities at Carthage

As a student success advisor, Jamie supports students through their unique college journey with targeted outreach and one-on-one appointments that cover topics such as time management, study skills, connecting to campus, transitioning to college, and personal well-being. Jamie also contributes to programming efforts through the Center for Student Success, particularly the Peer Coach Program as part of the College Success Seminar, for which she is also an instructor.”

Favorite thing about working at Carthage

“My favorite things about working at Carthage are the welcoming and supportive staff/faculty who are always willing to answer questions and the view of Lake Michigan from my office.”

Other interests?

“I am a huge fan of reality competition shows such as “Survivor,” “Big Brother,” and “The Challenge.” In the fall, I spend my weekends cheering on the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers, while in the spring/summer, I spend my time outside enjoying the sunshine any chance I get.”
