Students whose first language is Spanish do not visit campus as often as their English-speaking peers. But, Admissions Counselor Ambar Mendez is fluent in Spanish and is available to speak with students, parents, and other family members interested in more information about the College.

“Students from diverse backgrounds are vital to the College. One common denominator among all students and families throughout the college search and admission process—is that it can be daunting. A language barrier only exacerbates that feeling” says Susan Oakes, director for admissions and recruitment. “This is a process families experience together and a decision they often make together. Lines of communication must remain open not just for the prospective student but also for his/her family. The College may very well be home to these students. Parents can take comfort in knowing the College strives to foster familiarity and a welcoming environment for all.”
