Deanna Jobe

Greetings! I have been the International Student Adviser at Coe College for the past 25 years and continue to thoroughly enjoy all of the students that I meet and work with. I completed a year studying abroad when I was in college and know first-hand what an exciting time it can be! The primary function of my office is to provide you with any assistance you need in adjusting to life in the United States, whether it is cultural, personal, or academic.

International students who attend Coe College not only get a great education, but also have fun! As the Adviser of the International Club, I can promise you the following activities: a retreat and canoe trip to get to know other students during the second weekend of the school year, a trip to Chicago over Fall Break, a Cultural Show for you to sing, dance, perform skits, or participate in a style show, an International Banquet for you to prepare foods from your country, and more! I can’t wait to meet you!
