Globe University-Minneapolis is thrilled to welcome the newest member to the admissions team! Katelin (Kate) Campione joined Globe Minneapolis in April and works with undergraduate students. We asked Kate a few questions about her journey and why she’s so excited to work in Minneapolis. See below and welcome to the team Kate!
Can you tell us a bit about your background?
I lived in six other states prior to moving to Minnesota in 2008. I spent most of my years growing up in a suburb of Kansas City, Kansas. I started college at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, but finished at Concordia University in St. Paul with a degree in Biology and an emphasis on Environmental Science.
Tell us about your career journey before you came here to Globe Minneapolis.
I worked for Best Buy right out of college for a year and a half in various positions. I then took an opportunity to serve my community and spent a year volunteering for the Minnesota Conservation Corps where I worked with the Neighborhood Energy Connection and Xcel Energy to conserve energy residentially. After my year with the Conservation Corps, The Neighborhood Energy Connection offered me a position as a Crew Leader, and I was quickly promoted to a Program Assistant. I spent a little more than two years in that role and decided to try something that didn’t involve being outside all winter!
What excites you most about being an admissions rep for Globe University?
I’m really excited about the opportunity to help students further their education which will hopefully allow them to have careers they are passionate about.
What is your favorite thing about working downtown ?
Being forced to ride my bike into work because I’m too cheap to pay for parking. Also, the rain coming from the ceiling of the IDS Tower and the trees in the indoor courtyard are pretty sweet too!
What are some of your activities outside of working at Globe?
Basically anything that involves being outdoors. Specifically: kayaking, biking, hiking, surfing and snowboarding. I also love seeing local bands around the Twin Cities.
What is the best career/educational advice you have received so far?
“Character is what you do when no one is watching”
What words of advice do you have for any potential students considering a degree with Globe University-Minneapolis?
Furthering your education is so important! Not only does it make you a well-rounded individual, but it’s really the best way to ensure you have a meaningful career that you’re passionate about. If you dream it, you can do it!
