TEDxEMU - Caroline Horste - My Journey Into Student Affairs

Upon finding out that a hopeful student affairs practitioner received an undergraduate degree in geology & math, the first question that many people ask is "why", generally followed by "what would you have done instead?" This talk will explore the idea that a STEM degree combined with a lot of undergraduate involvement can actually provide a student with a set of skills and perspectives that fit right into studying student affairs.Caroline Horste received her Bachelor of Science degree from EMU in April 2011 (professional geology with a minor in math) and is midway through an MA in college counseling. She currently works as a graduate assistant in EMU's department of Campus Life and volunteers with SafeHouse Center in Ann Arbor as a domestic violence crisis counselor as well as with Prince of Glory Church in Madison Heights as a pianist. Her future goals include being a counselor in a higher education setting focused on women's health and forever being an extreme rockhound hobbyist.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
