About pretty officer kidd
I am a higher education professional with over seven years of experience working in state/community college and university settings in Connecticut, Maryland and Florida. I have worked with students in institution admissions, specialized program admissions, graduate admissions, academic advising, testing, orientation and degree planning.
After co-teaching a college survival skills course in fall 2014, I realized that too few students enroll in a first year experience course. Students who elect to not take the course need these skills, as do students everywhere who may not have it as an option. There are subtle nuances to college that aren’t advertised, so I decided to start a catalog of my own advice that I give to students I encounter every day.
I have been admitted to a graduate program to start spring 2015. My own experience as a current student combined with a perspective of living simple provides a unique voice to address concerns of the undergraduate student. Join me as I chronicle my best tips for success and my own academic and life journey.
