[MUSIC PLAYING] KATY JENKINS: Working at CSP as an advisor, I feel like the mission is truly to help students succeed.
RORY PAGGETT: The whole process of enrolling for college can be very stressful. And my job is to take that stress for them.
JUSTIN SUER: My role is to help a student plan his or her financial aid from A to Z.
RORY PAGGETT: So I’m keeping track of all the documents. I’m keeping track of all the deadlines and all the due dates.
KATY JENKINS: With advising, the student just needs a mouthpiece. They need someone to talk to.
JUSTIN SUER: So I really enjoy being an advocate for the student, helping them understand that it’s a complex process. So I enjoy sharing the burden.
RORY PAGGETT: That’s the most important thing, I think, about my role is simplifying the process. So all they have to do is know what they want, and I’ll help them get it.
KATY JENKINS: As an advisor, I think we really have to make sure that we’re meeting students where they’re at.
JUSTIN SUER: Obviously, most of these students work full time. Some of them work part time. So kind of helping them balance that home versus work versus parenting, all the things that they– the balls that they have to juggle.
RORY PAGGETT: That personal touch, that contact that we have, we’re making impact on people’s lives. So we try to keep the person first at every step of the way.
KATY JENKINS: The first thing I would say to a new student is that you’re never alone. But when students start, we’re proactive. We make sure that we reach out to them to let them know that they can always come to us with questions.
RORY PAGGETT: Any way that I can help someone improve themselves, make their prospects in life better, that’s worth it for me.
KATY JENKINS: We’re very confident in what we do. We’re very competent. We have the information. We have the resources.
RORY PAGGETT: We’ve got the next steps for you. All you’ve got to do is take it. And I’ll be here with you the whole way.
