Office of Student Life, CCAC Allegheny Campus
West Hall, Lower Level B-16
Vladimir St.Surin, Director of Student Life
West Hall B-3
Cool, calm and collective are the three best words to describe this newest addition to the Student Life family. Vladimir has experience in working with at–risk youth and providing services and mentoring to college students. He has an open door policy and welcomes all ideas from students because he believes that Student Life should be student focused. His vision for student engagement will help CCAC adapt to our changing society.
Gaina Miklusko, Student Life Specialist–Clubs and Organizations
West Hall B-12
Gaina has been around almost as long as Bob (see below) and is the Queen of Clubs (Q.O.C.). In addition to her club royalty, she organizes campus activities and coordinates special events like the O.S.C.A.R.S. (the Student Life awards ceremony), Student Life Club Carnival Day and Welcome Back Student Appreciation Day. Stop by Gaina's office in the Cougars' Den, West Hall B-3 to see what cool thing she has going on this week.
Christine McQuaide, Student Life Specialist–Publications
West Hall B-14
Christine has been with the college since 2005 and she brings with her a diverse background in publications, media and publicity. When Christine is not busy advising the monthly student newspaper, the Allegheny View, she produces all of the Student Life publicity (activity calendars, event flyers, programs and more). Students are always encouraged to contribute to the Allegheny View and to seek Christine's help and advice for publicity.
Ken Hoeltje, Athletic Coordinator
Ken has been at the college for 27 years and coordinates the campus varsity athletic teams and fitness facilities. In his spare time, he helps Bob with intramural and recreation activities. You might catch Ken in the PE building or on one of his frequent trips around campus.
Francine Palko, Student Government Secretary
West Hall B-16
As the secretary to our campus's Student Government, Francine helps out the senators who are the elected representatives of the student body. In the student life office, she is always looking for new ways to get students to loosen up and enjoy their time here at CCAC. Extensive student research has shown that cookies, donuts, pizza or just about any kind of food works best and the office usually seems to have some kind of goodie to nibble on. (Note: This often helps students not only "loosen up," but also "fatten up.")
Francine Cairns, Student Life Secretary
West Hall B-16
Francine is usually the first smiling face that students see when they enter the Office of Student Life. For several years she has worked closely with the Director of Student Life in budgeting for clubs, organizations and cultural events. Francine enjoys interacting with students when they come in to rent lap-top computers and make copies. She is always happy to provide some information about the Office's many activities.
