Team Leader / Student Life Counselor
B.A. (Telecommunications) – Ball State University
Office: WA C105
Dakota is ecstatic to be starting at the Academy this year. He graduated from Ball State in 2016 with a degree in Telecommunications. His passion for travel has taken him all over the world, from a semester abroad in Japan to media work in Italy, Germany, and Canada. He’s traveled all over the United States for varying media jobs, but settled into education in the last year and a half at Purdue Polytechnic North in Indianapolis. His passion for helping adolescents achieve their scholarly goals lead him back to school here at Ball State and with us here at the Academy.
Dakota’s hobbies often revolve around his passions for travel and media. He often times travels far into National Parks to photograph landscapes, wildlife, and the night sky. In between travels his seven animals keep him very busy. He has two dogs, two cats, and three guinea pigs all named Bean. He is excited to be assisting the students as the new Student Life Team Leader and is looking forward to the amazing year ahead of us!
