Position title: Admissions Counselor, Transfer



Arriana earned her Bachelors of Arts degree at UW-Madison with a double major in Political Science and Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies. Some of her favorite memories as a student include study abroad, joining an org called BRIDGE, and assisting families and students with financial aid while working in the Office of Student Financial Aid as a student worker.

While Arriana is not technically a first generation college student, she identifies with the challenges that first generation students face.
