In this series, we talk to our amazing advising team, to get to know them better and learn about how they can help students! Today, we meet Teddy Rose, assistant director of enrollment and academic advisor.
Let us know a little about yourself:
I am originally from the land of lakes, Minnesota, but have had the privilege of living all over, including New Jersey, New York, and Salzburg, Austria. I’ve happily called Denver home for the past eight years and love exploring different parts of the state. My favorite non-Denver place to visit in Colorado is Glenwood Springs!
I am a proud alumni of the Organizational Leadership program but love working with our other programs in my professional role.
Before moving into a career in higher education 10 years ago, I worked in restaurant management. While I do miss the restaurant life every once in a while (not on holidays!), I get my fix of culinary education through shows like Top Chef, Chopped, Be Our Chef, and Master Chef.
What programs do you advise for?
I advise for Security Management, as well as our Communication Management students with last names A-L
What can a student gain from meeting with you?
I can help students identify resources that will help them achieve their goals with their graduate education during our meetings. We can also talk about courses that pair well together based on a student’s commitments outside the classroom.
How often do you suggest a student meet with you?
It all depends on the student. Some students like to check-in quarterly, and some prefer to connect more frequently. I’m happy to find time whenever a student wants to talk through any issues they are encountering or planning for future quarters.
Best advice for students on how to navigate the education/work-life balance?
Use a calendar that you’ll get reminders. That way you can add reminders for projects and assignments for classes, any meetings with classmates or instructors, in addition to everything else going on in your life! Planning is a key part to success.
What else should your advisees know?
The University of Denver has lots of resources for you to help with your program. Let me know how I can get you connected to them!
