Owen joined the College of Charleston Admissions staff 7 years ago and serves as an Assistant Director of Admissions.  He previously worked in Admissions at his alma mater, Longwood University in Virginia where he earned a Bachelor of Music degree.  As a native Virginian, he currently travels to his home state as well as Washington DC, Maryland, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the West Coast.  He also works in coordinating Guidance Counselor visit programs as well as assisting some of our prospective student athletes through the admissions process.  He is a frequent traveler so chances are you will see him running the roads in your area very soon.  Be sure for look him when coming for a campus tour as he would love to chat with you.

Owen's admissions tip:  Fall in love with your likely schools and not your reach schools!  There is often too much heartache in this process and you should be focused on finding the right match for your higher education goals.  Always remember that the right college is "a match to be made and not a prize to be won."
