2018 Exemplary New Member Award recipient: Jana Jaraysi

Jana Jaraysi serves as the Director of Recruitment for Eastern Washington University.  An Eagle through and through, she launched her academic and professional career at EWU. In 2006, she earned her bachelor's in business administration with an emphasis in marketing and management, and in 2008 earned a master's in business administration and public administration. This background, along with her desire to help other students experience the transformative power of higher education, led to a natural career in Admissions. Assisting all students, but especially first generation students, underrepresented populations, and those who need extra support to achieve their academic goals, makes the world of Admissions an exciting field. Helping students access the resources that will let them succeed is the reason why every day is a great day in Admissions.
