Tip for the college search:

Don’t be afraid to ask questions! The college search process can be overwhelming, especially if you are navigating it on your own. Make sure to utilize the resources that you have and ask questions in order to make the best choice for you!

Ursinus is a great place for:

Making connections! It is impossible to slip through the cracks here at Ursinus. There are endless opportunities to connect with faculty, staff, and your peers! Our students build connections here that last a lifetime.

Background

During my undergraduate experience at Lafayette College I was fortunate to have the opportunity to complete an internship with the admissions office. This experience contributed greatly to my decision to pursue a career in admissions. After graduating from Lafayette, I worked as an Enrollment Management Counselor at Arcadia University for two years before making the transition to Ursinus. My own undergraduate experience instilled in me a great appreciation for the value of a liberal arts education. I am thrilled to join the Ursinus community and be able to provide other students with those same benefits! Additionally, as a former student athlete, I am excited to help students and families navigate the college search and recruitment process. I know first-hand how overwhelming it can feel at times and I am glad to be a resource for students and help them find the perfect fit for their college experience!
