After earning a bachelor’s degree and being in the workforce for several years, Jason Liebel realized he wasn’t doing what he wanted to be doing with his life. He came to realize that he actually had a passion for teaching.
In the spring of 2011, he was awarded a graduate assistantship in Edinboro University of Pennsylvania’s School of Graduate Studies, where he has been in charge of web page designs and research while learning first-hand to appreciate the level of “behind the scenes” effort it takes to run a successful institution of higher education.
While working toward the advanced degree that will take him on a new career path – one that will be a perfect fit for his professional passion – Jason also is taking advantage of all that is offered at Edinboro University, including attending musical presentations, films and art shows, and engaging in athletic programs. Recently, he took part in the creation of a men’s club lacrosse team, and hopes to help create another club sport as well.
Jason is a prime example of how “The Edinboro Experience” creates success in the lives of students.
