Admissions has been an integral part of my life since 1983, my first year of college! I became an Admissions Tour Guide in the second-semester of my freshman year and that started the chain of events that have led me to full-time, professional work in Admissions for over 15 years. As Director of Admissions/Recruitment, I want every admissible prospective student to attend – and graduate from – this Undeniably Viable Institution! Learn more about Dr. Allen.

The Security Department will issue tickets or citations and or immobilize vehicles for lack of properly displayed valid parking permits and other parking violations (e.g. parking in handicap parking spots, etc). Additional parking information is available online.
