Graduate assistantships at the STM
degree program: m.t.s.
Hometown: Los Angeles, California
Graduate assistantship: Admissions assistant
“As a graduate assistant in admissions, I answer e-mail and phone calls from students applying to the STM and in the spring, once we start getting the bulk of the applications, I’ll help process the applications, sit in on interviews, and do tours with students who visit campus. Since the graduate assistants are current students, we can answer specific questions about student life and social life at the STM.
“I’m in the M.T.S. program, and even though the bulk of my classes are more focused on the academic part of theology, I have interests in ministry and pastoral work. My graduate assistant position is where I get to do that work; helping students with their discernment process and trying to relieve any stresses that they may have has opened up a world that I might not necessarily get in my classes.”
