5 Questions With… Carla Aljoe, SAFS

Carla Aljoe, a student services operations associate in Student Academic & Financial Services (SAFS), has been with JWU just shy of eight years, and this past winter, she had the opportunity to work with the Denver Campus’ SAFS team for about six weeks. She and a colleague Jane Delamare, student financial planning counselor, traveled together to manage the department and help the campus open up the spring term in lieu of a director.

“Everyone in Denver was unbelievably welcoming,” said Carla. “Upon our arrival at the hotel, we met Kate, a proud JWU College of Hospitality Management graduate, who was so kind and helpful throughout our stay. The Denver Campus is beautiful, and I could easily see how the mountains and sunshine lure people to that city and campus.”

Carla lives in Providence and has family close-by in Boston, including her sister Nicole, brother-in-law Steve, niece Courtney and puppy-niece Bella.

1. What new hobby would you pursue if you had more time?
Join a curling league! I have no experience and no idea if I would be any good, but the Norwegian Olympic Curling Team had me, along with so many around the world, completely captivated in 2018 while wearing their crazy uniforms. How could you not be psyched for intense competition while dressed in matching crazy outfits?
