“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau
Hi there, I’m Geoffrey! What you’re looking at is my own little piece of the Internet, or in other words, my personal website and blog. This sites hosts not only my blog, but my updated resume and portfolio as well as some other odds and ends that you’ll find by browsing around.
My basic bio goes a little like this: I’m originally from southwest Indiana, born and raised in Boonville, Indiana and I’m a graduate of Boonville High School (class of 2012). After high school, I went two hours away from home to Indiana State University for four years to earn my bachelor’s degree. Originally, I wanted to be a teacher. Then I wanted to be a journalist after my first year. But my involvement and activities in college showed me another career: student affairs.
Having graduated from Indiana State in May 2016, I have a bachelor’s degree in communication and will now be going cross-country to the University of South Florida to pursue a master’s degree in College Student Affairs (class of 2018). I will be working as a graduate assistant in the Housing and Residential Education department as the RHA and NRHH advisor.
My passion as I pursue this career in student affairs is educational equity and access for all students. I believe all students should have the ability to go to college if they want to and can put in their fair share of the work required to do so. I was able to go to college because I received a tuition need-based scholarship. Students need to be prepared both in high school and in college to be successful.
