Hello! My name is Adam Helgeson and I am an emerging Student Affairs professional in my first year of the Higher Education and Student Affairs Masters of Education program at the University of South Carolina. I am passionate about my work and how I go about this work. As such I utilize my professional mantra: Aspire, Actualize, Assess, Repeat when planning projects, events, advising, and all aspects of my job. I aspire to make the biggest impact I can with the resources available to me, utilizing a creative mentality and excellent resource management to dream big within the realm of possibilities. I actualize those dreams through dedication to my passion, and a commitment to serve the aspirations of the students with whom I devote my time. I assess the process, success, and potential for growth of my work through self-reflection and both formal and informal evaluations. I love what I do, and I want to make sure that I'm doing it as well as I can. I have experience in Campus Programming, Student Involvement, Diversity Programming, Residence Life, and Public/Government Relations.
