Well known to many undergraduate students through the years,
academic advisor Raziya Chapman is retiring on June 1 after 32 years of service to
Georgia Tech College of Management.
Chapman, a native of Philadelphia who started out in the
College as a faculty secretary, held several different administrative positions
here (including executive secretary to the dean) becoming an academic advisor
"Of all the jobs I've had here, being an academic
advisor was the most rewarding and satisfying," she says.
Tech students are so bright. I loved working with them, helping them navigate
from their freshman year to graduation. I got to know some better than others
because they came in more frequently for help. Some reminded me of myself at
Charles Parsons, associate dean of the Undergraduate
Program, says, "Raziya has been a dependable contributor to the College
for as long as I have been here. Her many years of service in many different
roles are an inspiration."
After retiring, Chapman plans to travel, spend more time
with her grandchildren, and perhaps work supporting the local arts community.
