Justine Clarke

Justine Clarke

Communications Peer Consultant

Year: Senior | Major: Computer Science

Significant Experience: The most significant experience I have had through the HCSE is the DMAP (now DePauw-Kelley) Winter Term course. The accelerated program taught me many things about my perceived limits as well as introduced me to analysis and sharpened my research skills.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant:
I became a CPC because I saw how my technological skillset could play a role in helping the Center have an impactful reach through website and social media communications. I am also expanding my soft skills through peer interactions.

Matt Curran

Matt Curran

Outreach Peer Consultant

Year: Senior | Major: English Writing

Significant Experience: I have had multiple internships while at DePauw, including a semester long Public Relations internship at The Field Museum in Chicago. I will be traveling to Vietnam this Winter Term to learn about the intersection of western and traditional eastern cultures.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: As a senior, I am excited to speak with younger students who are working to shape their own educations and professional experiences. I believe strongly in the student ambassador model to make The Hubbard Center as approachable and accessible as possible for students. Professional opportunities can be intimidating and stressful for students, and I want to help students get past these apprehensions so they can be successful in every opportunity available to them.

Hyeree Ellis

Communications Peer Consultant

Year: Junior | Major: English Literature & Sociology

Significant Experience: The summer before my first-year at DePauw, I travelled to Peru with 15 other first year students on the Servicio en las Americas program. The service-based program required all participants to immerse in the culture of Peru through experiences, but also language. In other words, we weren’t allowed to speak English--only Spanish was accepted during the duration of the program. This program allowed me to expand my horizons and challenge and develop my own ideas on cultural awareness, identities, and social issues.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: As a sophomore I was approached by one of the staff members who noticed my skills with Adobe Suites. She gave me the opportunity to practice and polish what I love: creating content that speaks to individuals. I think storytelling is a crucial component of communication and I love having the ability to do so with other mediums than just words.

Significant Experience: I participated in Servicio en las Américas, Ecuador.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant to help others make the most of their DePauw experience. DePauw offers so much and so many students fail to utilize or take full advatange of everything. I took the Becoming Your Own Career Expert Winter Term Cource instructed by Hubbard Center Staff and was introduced to the mission of the Hubbard Center. I applied to the CPC positon to set students on the right track to success not only during their time here at Depauw, but after as well.

I am also looking forward to studying abroad in Shanghai next semester for a Business, Language and Culture program.
 
Why I Became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: I chose to work at the Hubbard Center for my ITAP internship not only for the hands-on technological experience that I'd be getting, but also because of the importance of the work. I help with social media, YouTube and website posts that I hope will help other students, providing them with resources and encouragement to take advantage of some of the opportunities that are out there for them.

The Hubbard Center offers a wide array of services and resources that can help students get on the right track -- provided they make the first effort. Four years seems like a long time but it really isn’t. Why not start today?

Yuka Kitajima

Yuka Kitajima

Outreach Peer Consultant

Year: Senior | Major: Peace and Conflict Studies

Significant Experience: I spent about 3 months in Hawaii last summer to do an internship at University of Hawaii, Manoa. It was such a beautiful learning experience. On campus, I serve in a few different leadership and internship positions, and it has been incredible to see how I could help different offices to do some collaborative works over the past three years.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: It all started by me talking to Raj, our former Dean of Experiential Learning, about some concerns that international students have regarding their career options. So initially, I wanted to be a resource to the Hubbard Center to be able to serve any students regardless of their background, especially international students. Then, once I began serving on the Focus Group and as a CPC, I learned how much guidance and resources the Hubbard Center has to offer, and that’s when I was determined to be a liaison between the office and the rest of the campus.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: For my sophomore year, I wanted to try a different leadership role on campus to explore what my field of interest is. The Coquillette Peer Consultant position was a great opportunity for me to exercise my interests: helping DePauw students and encouraging them to utilize the resources available while practicing my personal skills and knowledge in several areas. I learned and received a lot from the Hubbard Center my freshman year and wanted to be more engaged in it in order to give other students similar experiences to mine.

Significant Experience: I studied abroad for a semester through the IFE program in Strasbourg, France. Also, I had a summer internship as a Publicity Intern at Penguin Random House.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: Throughout my first 3 years of DePauw, I found myself using the Hubbard Center for various different reasons: off-campus studies opportunities, headshots for my passport and Linkedin, scholarship and fellowship exploration, and general advising about life after DePauw. When I found out that the center had opportunities for students to advise others on its services, I jumped on it! My goal is to make sure students are aware of the amazing opportunities the Hubbard Center has to offer.

Significant Experience: I will be studying abroad at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland next semester.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: Last year my eyes were opened to the amazing amount of guidance and opportunities the Hubbard Center has to offer. But I also found that not many students were as aware. So when the CPC position opened, I immediately knew I would apply for it. I viewed the position as a chance to help students open the doors to their fullest potential.

Significant Experience: I have had several internships during my time at DePauw so far, the most recent being during Winter Term my sophomore year as a Public Relations Intern at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. 

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: As a music student, I was initially intimidated by the Hubbard Center and didn't think it had any program or offerings that would benefit me. After coming in for a resume review, I learned about all the great helpful things that the Hubbard Center offers that all students should utilize. I wish to bridge the gap between the students in the School of Music and the Hubbard Center.

One of my favorite DePauw experiences is traveling to South Africa to study the social and political implications of Apartheid with some of my favorite professors.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: I was approached by a staff member who noticed my passion for connecting people on campus and my unusual love for the job search process. She told me all about the CPC position and I jumped at the opportunity to learn more about the Hubbard Center and to serve as a liaison between the experiences the Hubbard Center has to offer and my peers!
Brock Turner

Brock Turner

Coquilette Peer Consultant

Year: Senior | Major: Political Science & English Writing


Significant Experience:  My DePauw experience would not be the same without the experiences outside of the classroom and off-campus.  Through DePauw’s Winter Term, I’ve had the opportunity to study abroad in London, Oxford and Paris.  I’ll also be traveling to Vietnam this January on another Winter Term.  I have held a variety of leadership positions on campus along with completing three internships—most recently at VOX Global.

Why I became a Coquillette Peer Consultant: I was paired with a new staff member by our former dean who knew me from my numerous trips to the Center during my freshman and sophomore years.  The relationship the two of us have built after planning multiple career fairs, Sophomore Institutes and broadening DePauw’s employer base has been one that will stick with me long after I leave Greencastle.  My role on the HCSE team centers on helping all types of students learn about employers that interest them.
