What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?

Growing up as a diehard Boston sports fan, I love going to Fenway in the summer to see the Sox and visiting the Garden in the winter to watch the Bruins and Celtics.

What is the one piece of advice you would give prospective students about the college process?

Let us know about your passions. We are always interested in hearing the power of students individual stories and the activities or organizations they invest their time in. It shows us you can balance your time spent in and outside the classroom and it allows us to connect you with others on campus who share similar interests.

What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?

I think the best part of working in admissions is knowing that I am helping students make the first major choice in their life. It is rewarding being able to open prospective students’ eyes to the possibilities that the future can hold, and it all starts by choosing which college you want to attend. More than anything, I love being a resource for students throughout their process.
