Nickname: "Miles-per-Gallon" Meghan

Hometown: Milford, MA

Educational background

B.A., Public Policy and Law, Trinity College (Hartford, CT)

Responsibilities &
recruitment territory

I coordinate group visits to campus, and I travel to most of New England, including Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, and my home state of Massachusetts. I also read applications from Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, and Mississippi.

How did I get my nickname?

After graduating from college, my first big purchase was a Toyota Prius. I absolutely love it!

An interesting fact about the University that I discovered recently.

The University of Delaware was the first institution in the U.S. to participate in study abroad.

The best thing to see or do when visiting campus

Take a walk across the Green and see the beautiful buildings and the students outside playing frisbee. There is a real sense of community here.

Words of advice for a student who is applying.

My best advice would be to talk to current students and learn about their own experiences at the University of Delaware. Also, make sure to spend time on your essay. It gives us an opportunity to truly understand who you are.

The coolest Delaware experience

Listening to Greg Mortenson, the author of Three Cups of Tea, speak on campus.
