About Crystal

Hi! I’m Crystal Cleven, TRIO Instructor. I am a BSU alum who went through this very TRIO program.

I was a first generation college student from Middle River, a small town in northern Minnesota. I benefited from the one-on-one advising, guidance and services that TRIO provides.

I loved getting my education at BSU – so much so that I started working for BSU in the Admissions Office. After 10 years of working on campus and earning my master’s degree in education, I moved onto the TRIO staff and absolutely LOVE IT! It’s my opportunity now to ‘pay it forward’ and help students understand degree requirements and the importance of a great GPA and becoming a BSU graduate!

I look forward to each semester as it brings new opportunities for students! Stop by and visit me in Decker 251. I’d love to get to know you and help you achieve your academic goals.
