Amanda has worked for the Undergraduate Admissions department since 2003 and has held positions in both recruitment and operations. She first came to SIU as a student to study speech communication and decided to stay for a career at the university because she fell in love with the campus and community. Her advice to students is to work and study hard during college, but don’t forget to take some time to have fun too. SIU has a fantastic mix of unique educational experiences and opportunities to enjoy your time as a student.
