November 2019 Advisor of the Month

Check out some of the wonderful things our advising colleagues have done this past month! Thank you to each of you for all of your hard work and dedication to the students in your areas and OSU!

Rodica Barbu Senior Math Advisor Rodica Barbu has served as an excellent role model and mentor for our new Math Advising staff members. Rodica has been described as an “office encyclopedia” for her knowledge of policy changes and procedures and is more than happy to share that information with those searching for answers. Rodica is a dedicated professional and has assumed additional duties as leader on Math Transfer Credit evaluations, Honors Math students and more! Math Advising greatly appreciates Rodica’s positive attitude and helpfulness, particularly during the busy times.
Melissa Basford Melissa is always willing to go above and beyond in order to help students and fellow advisors. Melissa volunteered to help a new transfer student today who came very late for orientation. Melissa was very patient with her and spent the time needed to help her schedule appropriate classes for Spring Semester. The student really appreciated Melissa’s positive attitude and her help in scheduling classes. Melissa is an A++++ advisor and she is very deserving of being selected as the ACADAOS advisor of the month. Melissa is an exceptional advisor and a wonderful and very supportive advising colleague!
Sean Boley Sean as done an awesome job becoming the Manager of advising over the last year or so. He has pushed us forward as an office and has implemented many beneficial practices in the office. He takes time out of the day to talk to each advisor to see how we are doing and asks if there is anything we need. He is a great manager and role model!
The Exploration Advising Team I am nominating all of the advisors in the Exploration advising office because they consistently go above and beyond to provide outstanding advising and to put students first. As a team, everyone pitches in to support one another as we work to provide excellent advising and serve students at Ohio State.
Matt Moore-Waitkus Matt is a wonderful co-worker. He’s a great sounding board and shows support when needed – I always value his experience, perspective, and advice! I’m grateful to work with him!
Hillary Stanley Hillary has worked so hard to come up with new processes and procedures around a lot of our initiatives. She re-imagined our orientation day in a way that was so beneficial to all involved. She also oversees all of the College wide advising initiatives and always goes above and beyond for all of our staff, students and faculty.

The winners of this month’s ACADAOS raffle are… Sean Boley and Hillary Stanley! Congratulations!
