Name: Vanner (Van) Erikson

 Title: Assistant Director of Alumni and Development

 Years at NSU: 3

 Job description: As Assistant Director of Alumni and Development at NSU, I function as a development officer for the foundation and a liaison with alumni through the Alumni Association.  I’m responsible for websites, social media, event planning, stewardship, community involvement and fundraising. 

Why I like working at Northwestern State: I love working at NSU because every day I get to work with family, rather than coworkers.  Everyone who works at Northwestern State generally cares for each other, the students and the mission of the university.  I love the family oriented environment, which was the initial reason I came to NSU for my undergraduate degree.  Every day that I show up to work, I know that I can benefit the university in some way, which helps keep me passionate about the job I do.  I love the school and the community that surrounds the school, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to stay at Northwestern State and in Natchitoches.
