Felix Sommerville

Pre-Education Advisor & Graduate Assistant
Primary office:
Joseph R. Pearson Hall
Room 208


Felix is a graduate assistant, serving as an academic advisor for all pre-education students pursuing teacher education or HSES majors. He completed his bachelor's degree in Spanish education at KU, and after a brief stint teaching middle school Spanish he began working towards a master’s degree in higher education administration. Felix's favorite part about being an academic advisor is how planning degree progress is like piecing a jigsaw puzzle together. He also enjoys the experience of meeting with students with various backgrounds, passions and dreams. Outside of working and studying, Felix enjoys recharging his introverted nature by reading old books, drinking espresso and fly fishing.
