If you have ever gone to the Pacific Information Center, have been a podling or you are a transfer student, chances are you have met Director of the Office of Transfer Student Services, Denise Geisbers.
An alumna of Pacific from the class of 2000, Geisbers went straight from a student to a faculty member in the information office and has made giant leaps and bounds since.
Geisbers came to Pacific as a transfer student, technically. She came into the school with credits that she received from taking courses at her local community college and was seen as a transfer student and treated as such by the school.
When she was part of the faculty she decided to create the transfer student organization, Connections.
“My love is really with transfer students because I was a transfer,” explained Geisbers. This is also why she managed to create the first Office of Transfer Student Services in Oregon.
Even though transfers may have a special place in her heart, all students that come to her in need of help are always welcomed with open arms.
She said she loves to “be able to be a part of students success especially when they are dealing with circumstances that they think are beyond their control and then we are able to help them find a solution or bring things under their control.”
Geisbers is involved in all things that involve students; whether they need help through the information center, as transfer students, as a member of Greek life or just a student in need, Geisbers will be there to help find a path.
“We keep tissues in stock,” said Geisbers. “And even if you just need a hug, we have an open door policy.”
