Student Affairs alum gets mention in Chronicle
26 Aug 2015Quint Geis, a May 2015 Student Affairs master's graduate, was mentioned in an article in the Aug. 24 Chronicle of Higher Education. The article described the experiences of homeless college students. Geis did research on the topic for his master's thesis. In the article, he is quoted as saying homeless college students just want to be "normal, regular students." The article also notes that Geis' findings showed that these students felt disconnected from peers and got little support from their schools. But they also were determined to finish their degrees as a way to have a better future.
Geis is now a residence director at Gonzaga University. You can connect with him on Twitter @QuintGeis. He is conducting a webinar on college students experiencing homelessness on Dec. 2, 2015. For more information, visit http://studentaffairs.com/webinars/index.html.
