Admission

Destinee J. Harper

I joined Ursinus College in November of 2018. In my role as one of the Assistant Directors of Admission, I guide students and their families through the application process with a particular focus on diversity recruitment.  I work with students and their families from the following territories: Philadelphia, Long Island, NY, NYC (all boroughs), Texas, Norristown, Reading, Camden, NJ and Newark, NJ.

Title

Assistant Director of Admission, Diversity Recruitment

Background

While completing my Masters at Mansfield University, I was able to be the Graduate Assistant for the TRIO program. TRIO is a federally funded program designed to help students overcome academic and financial obstacles while they are in school. My work with TRIO is where I developed a passion for helping students to overcome any issues they may face through the admissions process and their time in college.

After graduating, I worked for the American Red Cross as their Volunteer Specialist, and prior coming to Ursinus, I worked at Bloomsburg University as one of their Assistant Director of Admissions/Transfer Recruiter.  I am so excited to begin my journey here at Ursinus because I have the opportunity to guide students in overcoming any problems they may face through the admission process. I know, personally, how overwhelming and nerve-racking it can be during the college search, application process and even the first year in college. It is my absolute pleasure to be a resource for students and their parents.
