Why I work in DU admission: 

During the 10 years I’ve worked at Dominican I’ve had the opportunity to work in several departments, and interact with a variety of staff and students. My 2+ years with the Admission Office has allowed me to experience working with traditional undergraduate students – a group with which I had not previously had direct involvement. As someone who was a transfer student herself, I understand the concerns and challenges of this particular group. I most enjoy talking with students about their plans for the future, and helping them complete their first step towards that future at Dominican University.

Thai (pad see eiw specifically)—Mama Thai in Oak Park has excellent Thai food—my mom’s recipe for potato salad, and during the summer, fresh food from the local farmer’s market
