A native of Pine City, Minn., Emily Erickson joined the Admissions staff in the summer of 2013 after graduating from BVU with a degree in Communication Studies. She says that a large incentive in coming to work at BVU was the opportunity to share her own journey with future Beavers.
"I had such a great experience while I was a student at Buena Vista, so I wanted to be able to share my experiences with high school students and help show how great of a school this could be for them."
As a college student, Emily developed her passion for interacting with high school students and their families. Now, she hopes to show them how valuable the strong friendships between BVU faculty, staff and students can be.
"There are so many relationships that help you develop through your years at BVU," Emily says. "The faculty and staff care about each and every student, and want each and every one to succeed!"
Emily points out that she absolutely loves to chat. She also enjoys running, shopping, and reading in her spare time, but working at BV gets her pretty excited as well.
"The overall friendliness of the campus has a huge impact on how BVU inspires me," Emily comments. "I hope students are excited about coming to campus after I get to work with them, and I hope to help them along each step of their way to becoming a Buena Vista Beaver!"
