Maggie Loscuito is the Student Retention and Persistence Specialist at CAMD. She works with students who would benefit from additional academic support and leads the college’s Peer Mentoring program. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Education, both from Northeastern University.
What’s your favorite part about working with students?
My favorite part of working with students is helping them navigate all that Northeastern and CAMD have to offer. I like sharing all the resources we offer, from clubs to tutoring, in addition to all the events the college holds. Also, in my role, I like being able to provide extra support to students so that they can have the assistance they need to achieve their goals during the semester.
What resources are you most excited to share with students?
This year I’m most excited to share the CAMD Peer Mentoring Program. We’ve updated the events we will be holding and I have many returning and new mentors who are incredibly enthusiastic and all have their own experiences to share with new students. I’m looking forward to our new students learning from them and hopefully learning something new about CAMD and Northeastern.
What advice do you have for incoming students?
Ask questions. I was incredibly shy my first few years at Northeastern, and it wasn’t until I started to ask questions that I really began to learn the nuts and bolts of what I wanted out of my experience. Plus, not only did I get the help I needed – whether it was for a class or where the Help Desk was – but I even learned about great hidden gems in Boston!
