MACOMB – The Western Illinois University’s Council of Academic Advisors Awards and Recognition Committee has announced this month’s Advisor of the Month. The recipient of the award was Christina Ramsey, of the College of Business and Technology.


"Every visit I have with Chris encourages me to try harder in all of my classes," said senior network technologies manor Jeff Swanson, of Chadwick, IL, one of Ramsey's nominators. "She shares insight into challenges of some classes and potential solutions. Because of her I have been able to maintain the highest GPA I have ever received." 

"I work in the Eastern Hemisphere, but it doesn't take long to receive a response from Christina," said WIU sophomore cyber security major Angel Raya, of Mackinaw, IL, a second nominator. "She is dedicated and helpful.  She even helped me secure a USCIS internship in Washington, DC for Summer 2019." 

Each month, a WIU advisor is honored with a certificate and trophy. Award winners are decided by a committee that considers each of the applications for the month.
