Faces of WGU

Samantha Rodgers, WGU Enrollment Counselor

I wake up every day happy to go to work. My job is to help people get started on their educational dreams. I can’t think of a better job than that.

When I first took this job, I didn’t realize how rewarding it would be. My main purpose is to help people become students at WGU, and there is a lot that goes into getting started. I take the time to discuss the student’s areas of expertise, as well as discuss their interests and future plans. I help students understand what is going to be involved in their program, as well as what the experience will be like with their mentor. I assure them that support will be there from the moment they become a WGU student, even in the enrollment process, until they graduate. I make sure all questions are answered and that they have help every step of the way. I love my job!
