There’s no I in Team: Meet the Interns

Last week you met us, the Admissions blog team. The HPU Office of Admissions is a full-contact sport, and behind every starting lineup is a full team of talent. Somehow, our hard-working interns juggle full class loads, sports teams, Greek organizations, clubs and other extracurriculars on campus, and still manage to offer us their talents and their time. These are the creative brains that offer their student points of view that go into everything we do in the Office of Admissions. We have a skilled team this semester, and we’re just getting started!
