January Staff Senate Spotlight

Abby Crow-Walker

Assistant Director, Student Financial Aid and Scholarships

How long have you worked at UNT?

13 years this summer.

What department do you work in and what does your position entail?

I’m an Assistant Director for Student Financial Aid and Scholarships. My position entails the oversight, distribution and maintenance of Federal, State and Institutional grant funds.

What do you like about your position?

More than anything I love our SFAS staff. Financial aid is complex and tedious. It requires a lot of knowledge but also a good attitude and thick skin. I’m in awe of our staff and how they truly show up for our students each and every day.

What is your favorite place to eat on campus?

I enjoy the variety and quality from Campus Chat.

If someone new came in and wanted to know something that no one else at UNT would know, what would you tell them?

Definitely not secret knowledge but I would tell them that there will be surprising ways UNT will touch different parts of their lives. In addition to discovering my love for working in higher education, UNT has brought me mentors, best friends and even my spouse.

Tell us something about you.

I live here in Denton with my husband and two young daughters and we are in love with all things Denton and North Texas. You’ll find us often picnicking on the square, doing local races, crafting at SCRAP and the list goes on and on.
