Senior Admission Counselor
Welcome to Eckerd!
My name is Sean Lauwers and I am excited to be your admissions counselor! You’ve chosen a school that will empower you to follow whatever path you want, or create your own!
I graduated from Elon University with a bachelor’s degree in Strategic Communications and from the University of Florida with a Master’s of Education. I’ve always felt strongly about helping others realize their own potential and figure out what they want to do. I’ve had the privilege of experiencing a liberal arts program, and I can safely say it enriched my life. At Eckerd, we strongly believe in the liberal arts, through which you will study a broad variety of subjects, in addition to your chosen major, which help you prepare for the world beyond Eckerd.
Part of the liberal arts program is encountering a number of different experiences. At Eckerd, you will start your freshman year with a 3-week orientation known as Autumn Term, you can jump-start your academic career by getting involved in research, you can prepare for a fulfilling future in the Peace Corps, and you can learn through living on Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast. These exciting opportunities give you a taste of all that Eckerd College has to offer as you learn and grow through the liberal arts!
If you have any questions about studying at Eckerd College, the application process, or what it’s like to study in paradise, I would be more than happy to help. Send me an email or give me a call and I’ll help get you started!
