A Part of the Admissions Team:

For me, deciding which college to go to was simple. When I visited campus as a junior in high school, I immediately knew Eckerd was where I wanted to spend the most amazing four years of my life. Not only were the academic programs distinguished, but the students were friendly, the weather was beautiful and I felt right at home. Now, as a recent ’13 graduate of Eckerd, I am thrilled to represent the Eckerd College community as an Admission Counselor. I am now here to help you along your journey of finding the right college for YOU, so please feel free to reach out to me if you would like to chat or have any questions about the admissions process or about life at Eckerd!

Life’s a Beach at Eckerd:

If you choose to come to Eckerd, you will find yourself immersed in a community of academic success and student involvement, all while under the shade of the palm trees on the Gulf of Mexico. While at Eckerd, you have the opportunity to make lifelong friendships, conduct research with renowned and published professors, as well as to participate in service learning and international study abroad opportunities! During my undergrad at Eckerd I traveled to Costa Rica, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands to engage in service. I was even able to study abroad for a Winter Term my junior year in Malaysia, where I explored a whole new culture and environment.

What makes Eckerd stand out from other colleges are the opportunities you have to grow as a student, while also as an individual. I participated in many things I never would have expected: I attended many diverse campus events, was able to take awesome classes outside of my Environmental field, like a semester with holocaust survivor and writer, Dr. Elie Wiesel. I even learned how to paddleboard at the waterfront! Being at a college where so many students live on campus definitely adds to the experience. I was also a Resident Advisor for three years which allowed me to meet new people, build strong residential student bonds and enhance the sense of community on campus. Now as an Admission Counselor, I hope to guide students through the journey of pursuing their goals, just as I was able to as a student at Eckerd!

Words of Advice

Searching for the right college for you can be an exciting, yet often overwhelming experience. If I was able to go back and do it all over again, here are some pieces of advice that helped me THINKOUTSIDE:

1)      Try to visit the campus of each college you are interested in applying to. Call the Admissions Office and set up a tour so you get the best feel for where you may be spending the next four years!

2)      Don’t be afraid to utilize the resources that are available to you if you have any questions about anything, whether it be your high school counselor, your admission counselor or your college mentor. Everyone is there to help you find your way.

3)      EXPLORE! Have an open mind and consider other activities outside your major or minor that you may want to try or get involved in. Eckerd and other schools offer so many opportunities on and off campus, so consider schools that offer activities you are passionate about.
