Professional staff members from across campus, as well as graduate and undergraduate students work hard to make sure the Center for Student Success is a place you can come to get the help you want and answers you need. You can stop by our office any time to receive assistance, have a quiet place to study, or even just to say hello.
Meet the Staff
Director of the Center for Student Success
Marrlee Burgess has been working with and for students in higher education for over 20 years. Off-campus, her other life includes performing as a musician and dancer in the sacred and early music realms and being a mom to her 22 year-old daughter Annie.
Student Assistants in the Center for Student Success and First Year Resources
We have a number of students who are here throughout the workday to do both the necessary jobs around the office, and to visit with and help students when they come in. Every year, we try to hire a new student staff member to join us, so let us know if you are interested!
