- Admissions Associate
High SchoolLittleton, Colorado
As an undergraduate admissions associate, Susan Ecklund is here to help your admissions process run smoothly. She loves all of the students that she has interacted with during her time as an employee at UNO, and she has enjoyed the opportunity to serve them. “I have met so many interesting people who have varied experiences and backgrounds while working here. I have always felt like education was extremely important, and helping international students, and knowing where they are coming from and that they get the chance to get an education in the US – it’s powerful,” she says.
Susan remembers her first interaction with the staff here, when she learned about how friendly and helpful UNO employees were. “I had the best job interview I had ever had. It lasted two hours, and I felt like even if I didn’t get the job, I had made some friends. I remember having coworkers who helped me along the way when I first started and still do whenever necessary.” That experience translates not only to staff, but to students here, too.
What else makes UNO so unique? According to Susan, it’s the atmosphere and culture. “I like the ethos. It’s a metropolitan university, and there is youth and diversity and a dynamic of brains expanding.”
