Marginalia

While working in the Graduate Admissions & Services Office at Columbia College Chicago, I managed the Graduate Ambassador Program, which included a team of 15 stellar representatives from each of Columbia’s graduate programs. I worked with Columbia’s developers and creative services teams to launch Marginalia, the ambassador-run blog and the flagship of the program, which was designed to showcase the College’s exceptional graduate students and share their experiences with prospective students. Among other proud accomplishments during my time in the Admissions Office, I created Marginalia’s editorial guidelines and calendar, editing all blog posts in the program’s first two years and publishing up to three posts per weekday during each academic year. I also lead the hiring and training of each Ambassador during those two years, and managed them in their prospective student counseling and admissions event activities.
