Trinity drew Hannah Wasco because it felt like family. She felt it as a student and continues to feel this way working on campus. She believes this really speaks to how special Trinity is. But most of all, she loves being able to work with students and is inspired by their creativity, leadership, and entrepreneurship.
One of the things that she loves about her job is that there is no “typical day.” Since her primary responsibilities are to coordinate new student orientation and involvement, many of her daily tasks change as the academic year progresses, just like it does for the students. Some days include meetings with Student Activities (STAC) leaders to plan exciting events, while other days involve collaborating with other offices on campus to implement the Thrive curriculum for new incoming students.
Before coming to Trinity, she worked at a few other higher education institutions, including the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities in Washington, D.C., and the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. She has experience in admissions, student conduct, new student orientation, as well as residence life and case management.
During her off hours, she enjoys reading, baking, and exploring new neighborhoods and nature trails. She also tries to travel as much as she can because she loves a good road trip.
