November 3, 2014

A message from MIAD’s new Director of College Advising, Michelle Gross –

michelle gross headshotFirst, please allow me to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Michelle Gross, and I am the new Director of College Advising at MIAD. I began my position here just 10 short weeks ago and I have truly enjoyed every day that I have been able to come to work at this amazing place. In my years working in higher education, I have yet to come across a place that defines community in all aspects of the word as well as MIAD.

I am confident that your student is having a positive, growing and – most of all – challenging experience at MIAD. Some of the things that make MIAD so special are the support and resources provided and available to students to take advantage of to make the most of their MIAD experience, and to get through the challenging times. One of my responsibilities is making sure that advisors and students are aware of the multitude of resources and support that are offered on our campus. Here are some examples that you and your student have heard about at some point, but may have forgotten:

Business Office – Room RL 10

  • Check your account balance, ask questions about tuition, obtain necessary tax forms
  • Meet with financial aid folks to discuss your personal budget and financial concerns, apply for financial aid, and discuss loans and scholarships

Career Services – Room 275 C/D

  • Learn about on campus jobs information and postings
  • Ask question and have discussions about internships, job shadowing, and informational interviewing
  • Connect to employers and agencies interested in working with MIAD students

Library and Learning Resource Center – Room RL 100

  • The Learning Resource Center provides group and individual sessions on study tips, time management and more
  • Tutoring provided by highly trained students and professional tutors in writing, multiple computer programs and numerous other subjects
  • Disability support services and accommodations, referral to Marquette University Counseling Center or ealth Center, reporting medical absences, and alcohol and/or drug intervention

Student Services Office – Room RL 45

  • Questions about student health insurance, grade appeals, academic probation, housing, roommate issues, student ID cards, bus passes, lockers, student meal plans and food, campus-wide events and student organizations
  • Questions about advising and registration, programs of study, how to drop a class, update your address, request a transcript, declare a minor, obtain enrollment verification, update your FERPA information, exchange programs and Veteran’s benefits

If you are still coming across questions and you are not sure whom to go to for assistance, please stop into the Student Services Office in River Level 45 (RL 45). We would be happy to send you in the right direction!

Michelle Gross
Director of College Advising
