Sue Barnes

Administrative Support Assistant

Sue serves as receptionist for the Center for Careers, Life, and Service. In addition to greeting and welcoming visitors, she maintains the appointment calendars for all CLS staff. She receives, reviews, and processes all full-time employment and internship opportunities that are posted to the PioneerLink database (Grinnell’s online career services management site). Sue creates and distributes the weekly CLS Newsletter and keeps the office running smoothly during even the busiest times of the semester.

Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Go Steelers!), Sue holds a BA from William Penn University—just down the road in Oskaloosa. Sue has worked at Grinnell College for 28 years, 23 of them in the Office of Admission before joining the CLS team. An avid (but average) golfer and reader, Sue loves doting on her three granddaughters.
