How Graduates Have Benefited from the Program
“The College Student Personnel Administration program has been absolutely phenomenal here at Seton Hall University. I have been offered the opportunity to expand my educational, administrative and life-developing experience. I was able to begin taking courses prior to entering the program, and I attended the ASHE Conference in Anaheim, California, where I participated and interacted with students, professors, researchers and educational leaders from programs all over the country during my first semester of study. As an administrator at Seton Hall, I have applied the knowledge gained from readings, and discussions with professors my peers. Finally, as I develop as a person, I have grown in confidence and accomplishment as a result of the diversity within the University community and programs that offer exposure to other forms of higher education. And my greatest joy: Accomplishing my dream of completing my master's degree by the age of 23!” -- Ana Esther Mercedes, M.A. '08, Financial Aid Counselor, Seton Hall University
“Participating in the College Student Personnel Administration program was one of the best investments that I have made towards my future. CSPA allowed me to develop my academic experience in ways that I didn’t know were possible. The professors and administrators that I met along the way expanded my way of thinking and challenged me on all levels. I have walked away from this program with the information and skill set that has made me a more confident and valuable employee, as well as a better grasp of academia. I credit my professors and the CSPA program with my success in higher education and I am truly grateful for the experience. ” – Elizabeth Rathbun, M.A. ’12, Marketing Associate, Villanova University
