Amanda Giles

Student Services Assistant - Advising

Works with Students Through Their Entire College Experience

As the co-advisor of the Student Government Association (SGA), I currently have the pleasure of working closely with the student body.  “I have the fun job.” Before graduating from QVCC in 2007, I made the decision to get involved in student activities.  Not only did this help guide my career path towards working in the higher education field, but it also showed me how important  student involvement is for a fulfilling academic experience.

Besides working in student activities, I am an academic advisor.  I get to work with students from the beginning to the end of their QVCC college career.  I help students through the College admissions process; provide academic advising, ensuring students are on-track towards achieving their goals and participate in graduation.  Because we are a small community college, I get to know most of our students.  I love walking through the halls and being able to say “hi” to many students by their first name.

This is a tight-knit community, that only a small college environment can provide.
