306 International Center


Biography: Laurie Felton has been with the Canadian Studies Center since November 2016 after a hiatus of 14 years away from MSU during which she homeschooled her two children.

Laurie graduated from MSU in 1985 with a B.A. in Music. Immediately, she began working in various offices on campus as a temporary office assistant until hired at the Kellogg Center as the hotel receptionist. When an office assistant position opened in the English Language Center, Laurie was hired, and there realized she had an affinity for and ease is communicating with international students. After the ELC, Laurie became the Graduate Secretary and T.A. Budget Officer in the Linguistics & Languages Department, a position she held for 12 years serving American and international graduate students from all over the globe. Before leaving MSU to homeschool, Laurie served as the Events department budget officer in University Development (now Advancement). Laurie still enjoys music, and appreciates both her degree and time spent as a student at Michigan State University.

Laurie would love to travel to Banff and Calgary in Alberta, Canada one day, too.
