Teri Rombaut, the Department of History secretary, has been with us since 2000 and has a wealth of knowledge about how to negotiate the system and an almost limitless willingness to help. Please check the College Catalog and the Department of History Web site for answers to your questions. However, you may also contact Teri if you can’t find answers in those places (see contact information above). Teri has copies of the forms you might need and can help you with majors reservation registration.
Teri has been with the College for more than ten years, coming to the Department of History in September 2000 from the Student Health Center. We continue to learn daily just what wonderful skills she has brought to her position and continues to cultivate. Rombaut grew up in southern Illinois and graduated from Blackburn College. She has worked at several colleges and universities, including Purdue University, the University of Texas at Austin, Washington University in St. Louis, and the University of Michigan. Marriage to a Brockport native brought her to the area. She and her spouse Tim have two children: Courtney, 19, and Connor, 17. The family enjoys camping in their spare time.
