Hi, my name is Arlene Torres and I am one of newest members of the Adult Degree Programs' team of Admissions and Academic Advisors. My offices will be located in the Milwaukee area. I value my ability to communicate in Spanish with adult learners seeking a degree within Higher Education. I’m ecstatic to be a part of such a "student-centric" group of colleagues who ensure their efforts include a welcoming environment for students and a powerful partnership with every student interaction.
Nontraditional learning has been an important part of my educational background and it has helped me understand student's needs on an individual basis. I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Global Studies at Ripon College. I continued my education and obtained a Master of Business Administration degree at the University of Phoenix which was offered in a nontraditional setting. My graduate courses consisted of adult learners from various locations both on a national and international basis. I experienced both campus courses and those which were offered completely online. I see the importance in knowing what resources are available and how to make the best of an educational experience.
I have a strong desire to help motivate others who are eager to make a difference in their own lives and make a positive impact within their communities. As your advisor, I will help guide you from the admissions process all the way to graduation. I am eager to get to know you and work alongside you as you reach your goal of graduating within your field of study!
