Meet the Admissions Staff

The admissions staff is here to answer your questions and help you determine if Marlboro’s close-knit community of independent thinkers is right for you. Be sure to contact them early and often. Each year, they travel the country for college fairs, high school visits, and receptions, giving prospective students a first-hand opportunity to explore the benefits of an intentionally small, intellectually demanding liberal arts school. Contact your counselor to find out when we’ll be in your area.
