2 Alumni Hired in Admissions

Name: Scott Cooper '11
: Business Administration

Current Job: Admissions Counselor at NCWC
Favorite Memory from NCWC: All the friendships I made through football and campus life
What are you looking forward to as a staff member? I am looking forward to all the travel and the recruitment for my job.


Name: Megan Simpson '12 

Current Job: Admission Counselor at NCWC (Southeast NC, SC and TN)

Favorite Memory of Wesleyan: I do not think I have just one favorite memory. I can talk for days about the stories of my fun and exciting memories here. As I think back I think about the friends I made, the people I have helped and the people that helped me grow along the way. In short, my favorite memory is the Wesleyan family that has loved me and been there for me since Fall '08 and is still here now.

What are you looking forward to as a staff member: My first goal is to recruit new students to come to Wesleyan. Wesleyan will always be in my heart and we should all take a part in looking after it.

Any other comments? When I came to Wesleyan as a freshman, I was so shy I would barely look at people. Who knew that by my senior year I would be standing in front of the entire school as the SGA president. I feel that I wasn't a number here; I had a chance to grow and become something great! I would not trade my experience here for anything. I gained more than just book smarts, I gained leadership skills, how to be a friend and how to live in the real world. I am grateful to be an alum and employee of Wesleyan.
