Have you met our new evening administrative assistant? Jessica Dressel joined us at the beginning of Winter Quarter. “Helpful,” “friendly” and “cheerful” are just a few words to describe Jessica as we welcome her to the Globe University-Madison West team! Jessica, however, is not new to our campus. She is a September 2014 graduate from our business administration program. We were excited about the chance to make her a part of our team!
Jessica grew up in Avoca, Wisconsin, and went to Riverdale Elementary/Middle School and then Riverdale High. She was on the yearbook committee and loved being in art and science classes. She graduated fourth in her class with high honors. She still lives in Avoca with her mom and four cats. In addition to working here, she also works part time at Culver’s in Spring Green. She loves to read and can go through a book a day (when she has time).
She graduated from Globe University-Madison West in September with an Associate in Applied Science degree in Business Administration. She is currently attending Southwest Wisconsin Technical College in the Culinary Arts field.
“Globe University was the school that really stood out to me when I expressed interest in it. My admissions representative was wonderful, and she really got me psyched for coming to college,” Jessica said. “I’m excited about being on the opposite side of things in this great school. The instructors and staff were so great while I was a student that they have forever changed my life. When I was offered this position, I was thrilled to come back and work with everybody. I’m also excited to be getting some experience in the business field and use my degree while I continue my education in the culinary field”.
Her advice to new students is that “no matter how good of a student you were in high school, college is much harder! So definitely study and take notes! I thought it would be just like high school, but it was a lot more difficult. Also, get to know your instructors and your classmates, as they can be a valuable resource to have when the going gets tough.”
We are excited and thrilled to have Jessica as a part of our team. Make sure to stop at the front desk and say “hi” and ask for her graduate advice.
