Meet our Team: Paige Begley

Paige Begley, Student Support SpecialistWhen Paige Begley joined our student support team last October, she was an instant success in the role. Paige truly enjoys connecting with students as well as faculty, and they enjoy working with her. Paige believes the biggest compliment is when a student requests to work with her again because they had such a positive experience the first time around. This is something that motivates Paige every day and contributes greatly to her success as a Student Support Specialist.

At UNE Online students are our top priority, and their success is what drives each and every one of us to do what we do. We’d like to share a little bit about one of the people who is dedicated to making that happen every day.

What do you do at UNE Online?

I am a Student Support Specialist for the Online Science Prerequisite Courses.
