Alejandra McFern

Nickname: Ale, Alex, Al

Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA

Educational background

B.A., Communication, Bethany College

Responsibilities &
recruitment territory

I travel to the Garden State! Central and southern New Jersey, to be exact.

How did I get my nickname?

Alejandra is not a common name. Sometimes people can’t pronounce my name or remember it all together! I take no offense and respond to any of the names listed above. Major kudos if you can remember and pronounce my name correctly!

An interesting fact about the University that I discovered recently.

Dr. Pat Harker is not only the President of the University, but he has also taught Business Administration & Civil and Environmental Engineering classes at UD.

The best thing to see or do when visiting campus

Visit Main Street!  If you have a sweet tooth, as I do, make sure to make a pit stop at SAS Cupcakes. Best cupcakes ever!

Words of advice for a student who is applying.

Attend an Open House.  The best way to truly find out if a school is the right fit is to set foot on campus and experience the atmosphere and culture. Be flexible and open minded…not everyone looks like you, thinks like you, or dresses exactly like you.

The coolest Delaware experience

My very first football game at Delaware Stadium (Tubby Raymond Field). Particularly chilly and windy that day, but filled with excited and spirited fans!
