Meet: Jen Walsh, the new director of student engagement and leadership

February 14, 2013

Jen Walsh

Name: Jen Walsh

Occupation: Director of student engagement and leadership.

Hometown: I have three places I call home: Dubuque, Iowa / Madison, Wis./ Ithaca, N.Y.

What brought me to Beloit: This incredible job, and a desire to be closer to family.

You may have seen me: Walking around campus with my dog, Annabelle. If you're interested in dogsitting, let me know!

Any advice? "Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional." (I can't take credit for it, but I love the quote.)

What do you do in your free time? I love live music, traveling, and laughing out loud. I am also crazy about Pinterest, and I enjoy trying new projects and recipes.

What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? It has been too cold to explore—ask me again this summer.

Proudest moment? Marrying my best friend.

If you were auditioning for American Idol, what song would you sing? Anything by Ben Folds, since I know the lyrics to nearly all his songs. But, I assure you, no one wants to actually hear me sing.
