Name: Natalie Sasseville, BA/03

Department: Housing and Conference Services

Title: Coordinator, Residence Programs and Training

How long have your worked at Carleton?

Six years in various positions

What do you do at Carleton and why is it important?

I am responsible for creating a positive living and learning environment in residence. I develop, coordinate and implement initiatives that promote academic success and personal development. I also oversee the coordination of residence life training, professional development and orientation events. I think that it is important that we support residence students in any way we can—this support encourages student success and a positive experience.

What is it about your job that inspires you?

What inspires me about my job, and life in general, is that the small things we do can actually change a person’s life, a community or even the world. Helping a student has a ripple effect that reaches far deeper than the surface we can see. I believe residence life is the best life.

What are your hobbies?

When I can find the time, I enjoy reading a good book, creating great food and entertaining friends, and watching as many Ottawa Senators hockey games as possible.
