Although the rest of the campus is quiet, the admissions office is still very busy processing transcripts and applications. Our student workers are also busy putting together admissions decision packets that will be arriving soon for many of our applicants.
I asked some of our office staff and student workers to sum up their 2014 and what they are looking forward to in 2015.
Andrew and Joanna, two of our admissions student workers are pictured here sorting the incoming mail.
Andrew, a broadcast journalism major says that he has a great deal to look forward to in 2015. "I will be graduating in 2015. I have enjoyed every minute of the time I have spent here at Quinnipiac. It is bittersweet to leave, but I feel that I am more than prepared to enter the working world."
Joanna, a business major said that "2014 is the year that I found that all of my classes started to fit together. I can see where my education will be taking me."
As students progress through their academic programs they do make the connections between their education and career preparation. Quinnipiac offers them the opportunity to take what they have learned and apply it to the real world.
Donna Cuomo, one of our admissions assistants, is looking forward to a big trip to start 2015. "I am so happy to have been invited to Hawaii". Donna's role in our office could be described as air traffic controller. She manages the multiple priorities of scheduling information sessions, importing applications and keeping us in good humor through it all. We wish Donna Momma a fantastic journey.
Erica's best experience of 2014 would be "moving to the York Hill campus. I have really enjoyed the change and have had a great semester "on the Hill" The undergraduate residential experience at Quinnipiac does offer upperclassmen the opportunity to change their environment with the move to York Hill. Our junior and senior students look forward to that move towards more independent living in the apartment style residence halls.
Kanicka Ingram-Mann, Sr. Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions says that she is "looking forward to the opportunity to meet our next class of incoming freshman". Our counselors spend their winter months getting to know many of our freshmen virtually by way of their applications.
The Undergraduate Admissions office will be closed from December 24-January 5. We wish everyone a very Happy Holiday season and look forward to 2015.
