Tricia M. Hargrove
I received a B.A. in Corporate and Organizational Communication from Western Kentucky University (WKU) and a M.S. in Organizational Communication with an emphasis in Business Administration from Murray State University (MSU).
Currently, I am an Academic Advisor with the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Kentucky (UK), specializing in the social sciences. My previous positions include Marketing Administrative Coordinator for the Center for Pharmaceutical Science and Technology (CPST) of the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy, Community Representative & Event Coordinator for the Mid-South Region of the American Cancer Society, Account Manager for Cardinal Office Systems, and Account Executive and News Reporter for WTVQ News Channel 36.
While advising undergraduate business students during my graduate assistantship in the College of Business & Public Affairs at MSU, I found my niche in student services and undergraduate education. In 2006, after working in the corporate marketplace for more than six years, I was thankful for the experiences I had gained but was happy to make the decision to return to the career field of higher education and to once again enjoy the opportunity to work on a college campus.
Today, I truly believe in the philosophy of advising as teaching, and I look forward to seeing positive results in the successful academic outcomes of my students.
