I became interested in the college admissions process after serving as a student tour guide in the admissions office of my alma mater. After graduating, I accepted an admissions counseling position at Bennington College in Vermont where I evaluated applications and reviewed art portfolios from students across the country. Three years later, after pursuing my master's degree in New York City, I joined the admissions staff at Barnard College where I served as a senior admissions officer. At Barnard, I directed Long Island and Boston recruitment in addition to managing the College's alumnae interview program, coordinating admissions statistics, and editing various college publications. Having also served as an alumni interviewer for Dartmouth College and visited over 75 colleges, I feel especially well-equipped to help students prepare for admission interviews and campus tours.

There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. And while the media tends to focus on just a handful of schools, we at College Coach encourage students to think outside the box during their college selection process and explore a wide range of colleges. As such, we are highlighting a new college each week in our School Spotlight series. Check out the college below, along with the other posts in our series, and you may just stumble upon your dream school! School Spotlight: Ohio Wesleyan University Delaware, OH If you’ve ever picked up a copy of Loren Pope’s guidebook Colleges That Change Lives, you’ve probably heard of Ohio Wesleyan. A private liberal arts college located in a quaint college town 30 miles north of Columbus, OWU is a small school that truly thinks globally. The University’s 1,650 students don’t just learn about business and environmental studies in the classroom. Thanks to competitive Theory-to-Practice grants, students have the opportunity to conduct research, pursue internships and participate in community service all over the world. Students at OWU are active, with 75 percent participating in a varsity, club or intramural sport. (And best of luck to both the men’s and women’s track teams as they head to the NCAC conference championships!) The academic offerings at OWU range from the arts and humanities to the natural and social sciences. Students interested in engineering can take advantage of the school’s 3-2 program and complete their undergraduate degrees at Caltech or Wash U, while future business leaders can apply for the Economics Management Fellows Program. Good to know: students with a 3.0 cumulative GPA at the end of junior year can choose not to submit SAT/ACT scores with their application!
