Admissions: If you have questions regarding programs or degree options, know someone who would like to learn about educational offerings and opportunities, would like to enroll in school, or refer a friend then look no further than The Admissions Department. Andrea, Director of Admissions, and her awesome team Adam, Keri, Rob, Lori and Dan would be more than happy to assist you and answer all your questions!

Education: Headed by Dean of Students, Dr. Jamie Kahon, and aided by the amazing duo of Stacey and Claire, the Education Department is available to help students choose and schedule classes, obtain tutoring assistance, handle accomodations, assist with on-line class issues, take care of test outs and the list goes on and on. These ladies can aid with outside issues as well, by offering community resources for automotive and childcare assistance, domestic abuse issues, and other types of personal needs and concerns.

Financial Aid: Just as the department name implies, if you need help securing financial assistance, knowing what your financing options are, or applying for grants or scholarships look no further than Cheng, Director of Financial Aid, Chris and Amy in the FA Department. They can help navigate the often scary territory of the monetary world of a college student.

Student Accounts: “How much do I owe?” “Can I make a payment?” “Did my 20% discount come off my book fees because I got perfect attendance last quarter?” For all these and other payment and account related questions, Debbie Heeg in Student Accounts is your go to gal!

Career Services: Whether you are looking for a part-time job while you are in school, need resume help or interview tips the wonderful ladies in Career Services have the skills and tools needed to help you land a part-time gig or your dream career and everything in between.

Library: Need help with a research paper, resources, APA style and citations, finding information on a certain topic or for a specific class, or just looking to read for fun and need suggestions? Nora, the library guru, is the perfect person to go to for assistance.

Student Ambassadors: Who better to help out students on their educational journey than fellow students? The Student Ambassador Group, or SA’s as we like to call them, are students who thrive on doing well, helping other students and helping their community. Whether it is a question about the ride board, program specific concerns or just needing a friendly ear, the SA’s are there to help their fellow students tackle any issue.

Instructors and Program Chairs: These are people who work, or have worked, in your field of interest. Their direct, hands on knowledge and experience is invaluable to you as a student. Don’t hesitate to ask them questions, pick their brains and go to them for extra information about your career field.

And don’t think the help stops there! There are always Dean of Faculty, Karen Salzwedel, and Campus Director, Adam Smrcka, who help round out the wonderful group of Globe Wausau staff who are honored to serve our students day in and day out!
