Face Time



Stacie Hagenbaugh, CDO


What do you do at Smith?

I'm the director of the Career Development Office (CDO).

How many years have you been at the college?

Just about three.

What is your busy season?

September through May.


Who gets the most face time with you?

Sadly, my email.

What are you reading now?

I just finished Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight.

What is your favorite movie?

Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

If you suddenly had two hours of free time, what would you do?

Go on a hike with my partner and my dog.

What is your favorite wall hanging at home?

Three antique tin ceiling tiles that I found at the Brimfield Fair. Randomly, they were salvaged from a Pennsylvania department store my grandmother and I shopped in when I was a child.

What annoys the heck out of you?

People who lack courage.

Do you eat fast food?

Very rarely. However, I find McDonald's fries with lobster delightfully satisfying.

Do you consider yourself an urban, suburban or rural person?

Urban at heart. I live in a rural area now and am learning to enjoy the solitude it brings.

Who are your role models?

Margaret Marshall, Ann Richards, Barbara Jordan, Eleanor Roosevelt, just to name a few.

What's your favorite thing about where you grew up?

The house itself. It was an old stone farmhouse that was filled with history.

What single piece of advice would you give to Smithies?

Something I learned from running marathons: the finish line isn't the most important goal. Taking the next step is.
