Why I chose Admissions
My years as an undergrad at Macalester gave me a deep appreciation for the College, it’s mission, and the students, staff, and faculty that make up its close-knit and diverse community. Admissions work allows me to combine my commitment to Macalester with my desire to help students navigate the complexities of the college search process.
I have worked closely with College Possible, the Chicago Scholars Program, and several other community–based organizations and college access programs. In the year ahead I am particularly excited to oversee Macalester’s partnership with Questbridge.
Favorite Time of Year at Mac
My favorite time of year at Mac is Orientation Week for new students. I love connecting, and re-connecting with the students in the new class, meeting their families, and sharing some of the excitement of those first few days on campus.
Love about the Twin Cities
Saint Paul and Minneapolis have all of the cultural, recreational, and educational resources of a big city, but are also incredibly accessible, manageable, and friendly.
