“We are so excited to have these elite students as part of our Thiel Team and Admissions staff. Each of these students brings diverse stories and perspectives of Thiel College and their college search to share with our prospective students and their families.” Vice President for Enrollment Management Ashely Josay Zullo said. “Our goal in the Admissions Office is to show each prospective student how they can connect and thrive on campus. Our Thiel Team students have been hand-selected as examples of how that is done.”

Also working with the Thiel Team will be senior admissions counselor Morgan Steiner ’16.

“As a young alumna, I am looking forward to working with Thiel students and making their perspective and experience a part of our admission process for every family that comes to campus,” Steiner said. “The expansion of the Thiel Team with 36 student workers is our way of showing the community and visiting students that Thiel College is ready to trust its students with the important job of being ambassadors for the Thiel community and to showcase just one of the leadership opportunities available on campus.”
