It is very rewarding seeing our students gain confidence, engage in networking opportunities and becoming self-sufficient, responsible and mature adults who are ready to contribute to the world of work. "
Fathima Naidu
Student Services Manager
"Working in the Student Services space places me in the company of colleagues who unselfishly give of themselves in service to our students daily. Working in a campus environment continually offers new challenges and requires new strategies and ideas to deal with these challenges. For this reason, the Student Services team rarely has a boring day at the office. Interacting with students generates its own kind of energy and excitement. The most rewarding aspect of this job is inspiring others to be all that they are capable of being, so that they can go out into the world and pay it forward by helping others. We get the privilege to be a part of encouraging future generations to pursue, embrace and find a passion that not only changes the way they think, but the way the world thinks. We may not be able to change the world, but perhaps we can change, or at least influence, their world for the better. …because student success matters!"
