JOB-MARKET SAVVY RESEARCHERS — Professor Holley Belch held multiple positions in higher education before becoming a professor. Her research interests focus on students with disabilities (specifically psychiatric disabilities), entry-level
housing professionals, and the concerns of middle managers in student affairs.
The Visitation Program is a two-day event that allows prospective Student Affairs in Higher Education students to come to campus and become familiar with the entire SAHE program. The 2020 visitation date is February 23–24.
On the first day, prospective students have the opportunity to meet faculty members and current students, learn more about the SAHE program, and sign up for graduate assistantship interview times.
The second day consists of 30-minute graduate assistantship interviews that run from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with an hour-long lunch break.
Prospective students who have been accepted prior to or who are in the application process are invited to the event. The department sends invitations out in late January.
Parking on campus during the weekends (Friday after 5:00 p.m.–Sunday) is free. During the week (Monday–Friday before 5:00 p.m.) parking on campus requires a permit. The SAHE department will provide all students who are driving to campus with a parking
pass and instructions via email. There is also an option of pay-by-space parking.
