Hello! My name is Sara Winn and I am the Student Success Coordinator for the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. As a professional academic advisor, I assist students with academic planning, understanding degree requirements, and setting educational and career goals. I also provide information on class scheduling, rules and regulations, graduation requirements, transfer issues, study abroad opportunities, internship searches, and life after graduation. I really enjoy working as an advisor at UNL and within the School of Natural Resources - it's a great place to be.
I am a Nebraska native - growing up on an acreage just outside of Fremont. After graduating from High School, I attended UNL and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography and then went on to earn a Master's degree in Community and Regional Planning. While at UNL, I was able to spend a semester in Lund, Sweden and also studied sustainable development in Costa Rica. I am currently one of the leaders for the study abroad program "Greece: Sustainability, Environment, and Society".
Outside of the university, I love spending time with my family, including my husband Kenny, our beautiful daughter, Larsyn, our energetic son Alexander, and the newest addition to the family, our son Cooper. We also have two dogs, June and Zeppelin, and a cat named Pancake. I also enjoy jogging, gardening, fishing, kayaking, and playing the piano when I find a free moment.
