Dannielle Curtis recently joined CEAS Advising and is working with students in electrical and computer engineering, as well as engineering management technology.
She is the advisor for 350 students and tries to meet with students in her programs each semester. “Every student is in a different position, faces various scenarios and is comfortable with varying course loads,” she said. “My job is help them successfully navigate the challenges of their programs.”
Curtis said she is enjoying getting to know her students and learning the complexities of her role as an advisor.
“From when they start to when they graduate, I’ll be on the journey with them,” she said. “There’s so much more to the college years than what happens in the classroom.”
Curtis previously worked in the registrar’s office. She received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from WMU, and hopes to start a Ph.D. program in the near future. One of 11 children and a first-generation college graduate, her favorite pastimes are traveling, swimming and reading.
