Anne Coulby

Academic Advisor

Multiple times, Anne has went over and above to ensure student success. Recently, one such example was expediting the internship process for a student who became eligible. She proactively sent the student interview prep questions and made a last minute meeting with the student to help him prepare for an upcoming interview. The student passed along a message as well saying " this is truly amazing, I’m so thankful to be part of a faculty that is so flexible and genuinely try helping their students out as much as they t. Thank you for everything. Have an amazing day.
