Hello and Welcome to Silver Lake College!
My name is Margaret Wolfgram and I work with students interested in Silver Lake College from Minnesota. I work out of my home office in the Twin Cities. I am married and have an (almost) one year old daughter, Gemma. I grew up in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and received my undergraduate degree from a small liberal arts college in Wisconsin and a masters degree in organizational leadership and quality in 2007.
I’m passionate about my job as an admission counselor and meeting your needs as a student in the midst of his/her college search. My goal each year is to know my students and their educational and personal goals so they can make the best college decision. (Of course, we all hope it will be Silver Lake College!)
I have been in higher education for 9 years, but this is my first year at Silver Lake College. What really makes Silver Lake stand out to me is how much focus administration puts on the student, the level of support from faculty and staff, and a genuine feeling of “home.” Everyone cares. In addition to the strong academics at Silver Lake, these are the things that really matter and will help propel you to your educational goals.
I’d like to hear from you. Please contact me anytime.
Greetings from Silver Lake College of the Holy Family! I am thrilled that you are looking at SLC and hope you will love it just as much as I do. As Director of Admissions, I like to say that I have the best job and the best team in the world. I am originally from Indiana, but attended college for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Wisconsin.
I have a dog and a turtle that I absolutely adore. I also am a firm believer that my nieces and nephews are the cutest children in the entire world and I love to spoil them rotten. My favorite pastimes are to read, be on the water in the new boat, quiet nights at home and to spend time with my group of girlfriends.
Favorite spot on campus:
The cafeteria – hands down. It’s the one place on campus you can go to see everyone. I love the chatter and seeing students connect with each other.
Autumn at Silver Lake College is breathtaking. The weather is perfect for a sweatshirt and jeans; the leaves are turning their gorgeous fall colors; the students are buzzing around campus.
The opening ceremony is one that I look forward to each year. It is a great way to be welcomed into the Silver Lake College student body. Not only do new students attend, but also faculty, staff, administration and current students. It truly is a community event.
Why did you choose to work at SLC or if you are an alumnus, why did you choose to attend SLC?
I chose to work at Silver Lake College because it reminded me so much of my undergraduate experience. I loved that when I walked through the halls I was greeted with smiles and “hello’s”. I wanted to work at an institution where the students and their journey came first and I found that at Silver Lake.
I chose to attend Silver Lake for my masters because I wanted a school that I could take what I learned and utilize it in my profession and personal life right away. In my classes, I had peers from all different occupations (nurses, engineers, human resource directors and law enforcement) and I was able to learn how each sector was different and the same. I am so glad I chose to pursue higher education at Silver Lake.
