I started working in the Registrar’s Office as the Assistant Curriculum Specialist last April. My main project is facilitating the upcoming transition from 4 credit to 3 credit classes, which involves processing about 900 different proposals. So far, this has been a great opportunity to learn about all of the majors, minors, and courses on campus, as well as the enormous amount of planning that goes into a college curriculum. In addition to my work with the curriculum, I locate and deliver student records and help students, faculty, and staff who visit the front desk at the Registrar's Office.
