I’m Philippa Roberts and I’m excited about being your admissions counselor! I grew up in Europe attending international schools, always surrounded by people with diverse backgrounds and cultural experiences. That is one of the reasons I love Eckerd College so much because our students come from all over the country and world, and are able to share their experiences on our campus. Students travel on average 1,000 miles to come to our campus.
I graduated with a bachelors degree in International Studies from Muhlenberg College, and a masters degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Boston University. I am very passionate about the liberal arts and all the opportunities that students can receive from attending a small liberal arts college. At Eckerd College, students are truly learning to Think Outside (sometimes literally as many of our classes will leave the classroom!).
If you have any questions or concerns about whether Eckerd College is the right fit for you, or about the application process, I would be happy to help! You can call me or send me an email and I would love to talk with you!
