Helen Brabant-Bleakley

Helen graduated in 2018 from Ursinus with a degree in Sociology and French. While at Ursinus she worked in admission, the Institute for Student Success, and served on the board of Best Buddies. She also worked in advancement during all 4 years of her time at UC which prepared her for her current career in higher ed advancement. She now lives in Boston and works in Annual Giving at Simmons University. She now runs her own team of student Phonathon callers, a Senior Class Gift Committee, and a Student Philanthropy Council (similar to S.T.A.T.)! Helen would not be where she is today professionally or personally without the experiences and mentors she had at Ursinus. She now loves engaging with the alumni community whenever she can!

Favorite Ursinus Memory

While at Ursinus I worked 6 on campus jobs including being heavily involved in Admission and Advancement. I loved learning about all the different sides of UC and meeting people from across the faculty and staff who worked every day to make Ursinus such a great place to be.

Why I Support UC

I would not be where I am today without Ursinus and the people who raised me during that part of my life. I love connecting with fellow alums who love UC as much as I do and learning from current students about their passions.
