Liaison and Scholarship Advisor, OIP
Office hours at Montserrat: Tuesdays 5-7pm
My name is Hannah Maria Cazzetta, and I am the new Scholarship Advisor and Montserrat Liaison. I am a graduate student at the Lynch School of Education studying International Higher Education. I am originally from Illinois, but I received my undergraduate degrees in Global Studies and Spanish from Salve Regina University in 2015. After studying abroad for 12 months in Chile, I continued working abroad in Paris, France, followed by a year as a Fulbright Scholar in Tunja, Colombia. Scholarships were the only reason I was able to go abroad, and this experience changed my life. I am so looking forward to helping the Montserrat students become global citizens through funding opportunities at Boston College and with the Office of International Programs.
Montserrat's Academic Coach from the Connors Family Learning Center
Academic Coach, Connors Family Learning Center
I grew up in Farmingville, NY, and it was always my goal to attend college. As a first generation student to attend college and second generation student with a wonderfully large, strong Hispanic and Italian family (you could imagine---our holidays are one of a kind), there were many obstacles along the way once enrolled. Looking back on the difficult experience I had transitioning to college, it makes me appreciate the strong bonds and network of resources that Montserrat provides to BC students. I am grateful to be one of those resources.
Today, I currently hold a BA in English and Psychology and an MA in English from SUNY New Paltz. I have set my expectations higher and am currently pursing a second MA in Philosophy and Theology at Boston College. I am looking forward even further to applying for a PhD in Higher Education in order to be in a position where I can be the person I needed as a student: to be the person who says "Yes" when others have said "No," and to be the person who learns and grows alongside their students. As the Academic Coach at Connors Family Learning Center, with the support of incredible mentors, the goals and expectations I have set keep me moving forward. When others say "No you can't do that," I now respond with "I am going to try."
