Our team was thrilled to welcome admitted students to the Keller Center for our first Admitted Student Day in 2019. Admitted students scattered throughout Keller to learn from University of Chicago professors, staff, and current students about what it means to be a Harris student. Our Admissions team enjoyed the day’s unparalleled energy as visiting admitted students began to envision themselves at Harris. Read on to hear our staff’s highlights! 

Andie Ingram Eccles, Student Recruitment and International Programs Specialist

“My favorite part of Admitted Student Day is being a witness to the “getting the feel” of Harris. Only so much can be shared on the phone or through email. It is a game changer when admitted students come to campus. They are able to explore Chicago, preview all the UChicago resources and opportunities, and, above all, connect with their future professors and classmates.”

Sparkle Dalphinis, Associate Director of Student Recruitment

“It was nice meeting our admitted students and getting to know them. I was pleased to hear about their positive experiences sitting in on Harris classes. I look forward to connecting with more students in person at our second Admitted Student Day on April 5th!”

Samantha Ng, Assistant Director of Student Recruitment

“Admitted Student Day was full of energy.  It was great seeing so many of the students I’ve been working with for the past few months, and I look forward to an even larger group in April!”

Andy Wolanski, Assistant Director of Student Recruitment

 “It was so exciting to host our very first Admitted Student Day in the Keller Center! Many of the admitted students I interacted with that day commented on how beautiful the building is and how collaborative the working spaces seem. I loved seeing so many admitted students connecting with each other, exchanging contact information, and already becoming friends.”

Emma Richardson, Student Recruitment Specialist

“It was great to connect with so many admitted students – I’ve worked with some of them since the summer, and to finally meet them in person definitely made my week!"

Devon Reber Drehmer, Director of Student Recruitment and Operations

 “It was so fun meeting with prospective students throughout the fall, and having them with us at the Keller Center was wonderful! My favorite part of the day was seeing the admits meet each other and start to form their professional network at Harris.”

Shilin Liu, Director of International Partnerships and Executive Education

 “Admitted Student Day is always the best way to start connecting your wild ideas about graduate student life with the real opportunities you can pursue. Student who attended our first event got to ask all their questions to professors, career coaches, admissions team, and current students and heard real answer that will help them make the right decision!”
