Division of student affairs hosts student affairs month activities

NSU’s Division of Student Affairs will table at SEA Thursdays for the rest of October, as part of Student Affairs month, to inform students about services offered within its departments and offices.

Patrice Abner, graduate assis-tant for Fraternity and Sorority Life, said, “We’ll give information to students about Student Affairs and the graduate program we have at NSU. We’ll have some giveaways and we’ll also tell interested students that they can shadow a professional in the field the week of October 24.”

Students can shadow Student Affairs employees to learn about how their duties and responsibilities contribute to the university community.

Andrea Gaspardino Kovachy, director of Student Activities, said, “People see us, at times, as the party planners and don’t realize we are really trying to develop leaders. Sharing with others the impact we can have on students outside the classroom is vital as they persist to graduation.”

Abner said Student Affairs employees work in offices such as Student Orientation, Residential Life, Student Activities, Student Leadership and Civic Engagement and Career Development.

Kovachy said Student Affairs helps students develop outside the classroom. Abner said this is one reason she now works with Greek life.

“I got involved with Student Affairs because a lot of people who helped me develop when I was in undergrad were people who worked in Student Affairs,” said Abner. “I can give back to students what people gave to me.”

Any student that can’t attend SEA Thursdays can email Patrice Abner at pa293@nova.edu
