CSU has been Bethel's home since the summer of 2007. "B" as she prefers to be called comes to CSU after spending 10 years in Boston, MA where she obtained her bachelors and masters as well as worked at several universities. As one of the Assistant Directors in the office, she serves as the primary advisor to the campus programming board, ASAP. When not working, B can always be found with friends or simply engaging in conversation with someone as she believes people come into our lives for a reason; and you don't know someone's story until you take time to get to know them. Add a card game to the mix; or some friendly sports competition, and life could not get any better.
