The Department of History’s new Academic Success Coordinator, Kim Daggett, is getting geared up for fall advising. She began her duties at CSU on August 29 and now, less than two months later, she is ready to see a steady stream of History majors in her office in Clark C207. In her short time at CSU, Kim is already impressed with the History students. She describes them as very dedicated learners who are passionate about critical thinking but who sometimes struggle with what they want to do after graduation.
Kim, who earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Nevada-Reno and her Master’s at CSU, worked as an admissions counselor at Fort Lewis College before moving to Fort Collins. That job served her well because even though the majority of her job involves helping students chart out an academic program, she also works with them to meet their personal goals.. “I’m more than an advisor,” Kim notes, “because I connect students to campus resources.” She routinely discusses career options with students and helps some of them to navigate the process of applying to graduate school. “I love meeting with students,” she explains and reiterates that she is available to help with more than just planning a schedule.
Kim enjoys living in Fort Collins, especially the sunny weather and the bike friendly environment. She loves the fact that Fort Collins is a college town and that CSU is so much a part of the community.
