Kevin Knutson is director of advising in the College of Arts and Sciences at Western Michigan University. 

He started working at WMU in 1994 and states the best part of his job is talking to college students, something the University actually pays him to do!

Knutson has traveled to many places including Japan, El Salvador, Mexico, Denmark, England, Belgium, France, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan and Canada.

Knutson is originally from Elk River, Minnesota, though he was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His family moved to Long Beach, California; Staten Island, New York; Grenora, North Dakota; Jamestown, North Dakota; and Rogers, Minnesota all before he turned 12.

He enjoys sports of all kind and played ice hockey up until 5 years ago.  He has a lovely wife Lisa of 24 years and two daughters in high school.
