Name:  Carrie Chandler Smith

Title: Coordinator of Graduate School Admissions and Records

Years at NSU: 10

Job description:  The vast majority of my job is working with Graduate School applicants in person, by phone and e-mail.  I am usually the first contact the student has.  I verify the students’ eligibility for Graduate School and make sure they receive information so they will know their responsibility for their admissions acceptability.  I work closely with our Graduate School liaisons from each graduate program, the Registrar’s Office and Admissions Office.

Why I Like working at Northwestern:  Actually, I don’t like working at Northwestern, I love working at Northwestern.  I love meeting and dealing with so many different personalities.  It is so interesting listening to and learning so many different cultures and traditions in the United States and abroad.  It makes me proud to say I work at Northwestern because our students, faculty, staff and alumni truly are family and I know without a doubt that when one of “our family” is in need, this family pulls together to lend a helping hand.  And my biggest satisfaction is when a student takes time to come in, call or e-mail to say, “Thank you for your help.”
