“Who are You Talking to?” Tuesday—Denise Rotavera-Krain, College Success Counselor

At Ohio State ATI, there are multiple people and services with the goal of helping students achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. One such person is Denise Rotavera-Krain, who is our College Success Counselor.

Having graduated from Kent State University in 2019 with a master’s degree in Higher Education and Student Personnel, Denise’s job is to help students with multiple aspects of college life. This includes anything from helping with study skills and career exploration to resume writing and interview preparation. She meets with students one-on-one and also hosts group resume, cover letter, and interviewing workshops. One tip she would give a prospective student for success in college is to “use a weekly planner and update it frequently.”

Her favorite part of Ohio State ATI is our students. While she has worked at Ohio State ATI for only 8 months, she has worked in higher education for many years. “I have always loved working with college students,” she says. “Their energy is infectious, and it is so rewarding to watch them transition from high school graduates to college students to young adulthood.” She believes that a college education opens the doors for students to grow both professionally and personally.

Denise is only one of Ohio State ATI’s resources for student success; many more can be found here. Resources range from disability services to tutoring, counseling, and many other services. In fact, when asked what the value of coming to college at Ohio State ATI is, Denise responded, “At Ohio State ATI, faculty and staff are eager to work with students and help them thrive.”
