Favorite fun fact about Roosevelt

The Auditorium Building was a 400-room hotel that was purchased by Roosevelt University for just $1 in 1947!

What makes Roosevelt unique/stand out from the other Chicago area colleges?

I think that Roosevelt University separates itself from other Chicago area colleges by presenting itself as an ever-changing education option for an incredibly diverse student body. Roosevelt expressed a desire to build a dominant downtown Chicago presence; the Wabash building opened in the Fall of 2012. Roosevelt expressed a desire to reinstate an inter-collegiate athletic program; the Goodman Center has been home of Roosevelt athletics since December of 2012. These are just two of the countless examples that showcases the dynamic university that Roosevelt has become.

Describe your role when it comes to helping students 

I am the student’s go-to resource with any questions about their financial aid. I believe that Roosevelt is a great academic institution and I want to be able to discuss each interested or current student’s financial options with them.

Best way to spend a day off of work

A long run out on the lakefront, a big breakfast, some time with the family during the day and a night out on the city with friends.
