Hi my name is George Garcia and I am the Associate Director for Diverse and Inclusive Recruitment.  I am excited you are looking at Eckerd! Eckerd is a very unique place and attracts students from all around who value diversity and creativity, in fact, around 83% of our student population are from out of the state of FL! Just like the majority of our student population, I am also not from Florida! I am coming from New England, Boston, MA to be exact. Alongside many of our current students, I too enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures from around the world.

I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree from Dean College and with my MBA from Curry College, so I understand what it means to attend a smaller institution! With many years of experience in Liberal Arts and STEM focused colleges, I have experienced the many different positive facets of education. A small liberal arts school opens many opportunities for students and Eckerd can help students achieve anything they desire, and truly learn how to think outside.

If you have any questions or concerns about whether Eckerd College is the right fit for you, or about the application process, you can call or send me an email and I would love to help you!
