Globe University-Sioux Falls strives to make every student feel welcome and appreciated on campus. Our students are always our first priority, and we enjoy getting to know them during their time in school.
Many students who attend Globe University feel connected to the staff and faculty members because we are a small school, which allows everyone on campus to feel more connected to one another. So when students need to reach out for help, they have a variety of services, resources and people available to them. Personal connections and student engagement also aid students on their academic journey.
Recently, criminal justice student Scott Butler interviewed Admissions Representative Scott Ault for his Composition class. Butler learned about Ault’s pastimes, hobbies and more during the interview. After writing about Scott’s goals and why he chose to work for Globe University, he concluded his paper with: “Scott is truly a unique guy, and I had a great time interviewing him. He is a very outgoing and friendly individual, who I think by just talking to him, would do anything for anyone. Not only do I have someone here at Globe University that I can always talk to and not feel judged, I have a new friend with whom I have a lot in common.”
Director of Admissions Charlie Buehler has influenced almost every student on campus, whether during the admissions process or in his Global Citizenship course. Massage therapy student Caroline Jorgenson had this to say about Charlie:
“Charlie doesn’t know this, but he saved my life. I didn’t know what I wanted to do in my life or where to go next. I came to Globe to talk to Charlie, and he encouraged me to follow my dreams. I was nervous about taking a math class again, but Charlie supported me and told me I could do it! He made me feel good about coming back to school, and I am so grateful to him.”
Another staff member who helps students every day is Financial Aid Manager Elizabeth Augustine.
“Liz has gone leaps and bounds beyond any other financial aid manager I have worked with. She is always eager to help, which I appreciate. I applied for a scholarship this year, and she fought to have some of the money applied to this quarter’s tuition. I really enjoy working with her, and I’m so grateful for her hard work!” said veterinary technology student Rachael Turner.
Finally, our administrative assistant, Karmin Jensen, has really made an impact on massage therapy student Carrie Palmlund:
“Administrative assistants don’t always get enough credit for their jobs. Karmin helps everyone with any question they have and is skilled at pointing people in the right direction when she cannot answer their question. She is so upbeat and positive, and she has a good energy for anyone who walks through the door,” said Carrie.
We want all our students to feel like a part of the Globe University-Sioux Falls family while attending school and beyond.
