A Q&A with Fulbright College Office of Student Services’ Katherine McClain
Admin III in the Fulbright College Office of Student Services
J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences
In this conversation, McClain talks about her passion for helping students succeed, her love of creating art and graphic design projects like the college’s Diversity and Inclusion imagery, enjoying finger painting and music with her son, and working toward her goal of becoming a therapist specializing in art and play therapies.
I’m an Admin III for the Fulbright College Office of Student Services, which is part of the college’s Dean’s Office, and its Advising Center and Student Success Team.
On top of the usual admin duties, I also do graphic design work for our Student Success Team. It’s deeply gratifying to use my art with our Student Success Team to help reach and engage our students.
Three and a half years! My, how the time has flown.
The people I work with are my favorite part of working for Fulbright College! Everyone here truly cares about our students and strives to help them succeed. I’ve never worked with a more generous and driven group of people.
I hope they come away feeling at ease and reassured that things are being taken care of.
We handle a lot of student documents and advising which can be stressful for the students, so if I can make them laugh along the way then I feel like I helped relieve some of that stress.
I’m an artist so I like to sketch, ink and color, but my most treasured work of art is my son.
We’re always making a mess at finger painting, exploring our neighborhood, and making music.
Q: What’s up next on the horizon for you?
I’m taking it one day at a time and enjoying this exciting time in my life.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to add or let readers know?
I also do freelance graphic design in my spare time. Let’s work together sometime!
