Works with: Incoming freshmen from northern Illinois
As a QU Student, Leslie Johnson found a home at Quincy University. "I am a recent graduate and was thankful every day to be a student here. I chose QU after a visit and felt immediately at home. I knew when I stepped onto this campus that QU would become my home for the next four years."
Today, Leslie is passionate about helping new students discover QU. "I am ready and willing to help ease the transition from high school to college. I want to be a helping hand to both incoming student and their parents. Being the youngest of four children and the only one to go away to college, I understand the difficulties students and parents face in preparing for this new journey."
She also knows what sets QU apart. "My favorite thing about QU is the amazing support and relationships between the students and the faculty. Our professors can truly get to know the students as a person rather than being just another face in a crowded lecture hall."
Leslie grew up in Hardin, Illinois and is an avid St. Louis Cardinals and Blues fan. She enjoys spoiling her nieces and nephews, and catching a game when she can. Leslie confesses that she is obsessed with movies and television. So be aware when you're talking with her, you never know when she'll sneak in a quote from her favorite show, Friends!
