Getting to Know Our Students: Meet Sarah Crosby

This fall, we’re running a series getting to know students from all our programs in the College of Education. This week, meet Sarah Crosby, a graduate student from the great state of Illinois. And, catch up with all our other students on the blog!

crosbyMy name is Sarah Crosby, and I have the privilege of being a first-year student in the Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE) program in the Educational Policy and Leadership department here at Marquette. My role at Marquette–besides that of a graduate student– is as a Graduate Assistant for the College of Education. As I was researching for graduate programs I knew after spending five years in Kansas completing my undergraduate work that I wanted to be closer to home. I am originally from Rockford Illinois,  but I’ve recently relocated to Milwaukee for my graduate degree. However, I would consider Wisconsin to be a central part of my life; for the last twenty years my family and I  have spent the majority of our time in Green Lake, Wisconsin. Besides spending time in Green Lake, my family and I are  huge K-State fans. My family plays a central role in my life, and I am so excited to be close to them again!  When I am not doing school work or my Graduate Assistantship, I love to spend time with my family, being outdoors, working out,  watching K- State sports, and watching old classic tv shows.

As I was researching graduate programs, I was looking for somewhere that was closer to home but — most importantly — had a mission of family and serving others in a holistic approach. Consequently, when I arrived on Marquette’s campus for SAHE’s interview day in February, I instantly felt the family feel that I was looking for, especially in the College of Education. I felt like the faculty and staff I intermingled with really cared about me as an individual and not just a number. That has continued to play out as I am now officially a Marquette student! With that being said, I am incredibly excited for the opportunities that the SAHE program and my  Graduate Assistantship will entail these next two years.
