A day in the life of…Andy English

A day in the life of...Andy English

by Blair BoydStaff Writer

You may think everyone who works in admissions has one goal: to recruit students. But that’s not all that Andy English, admissions counselor and ambassador supervisor does. Though English does have a priority to recruit students to attend Simpson, he also is the supervisor of the student ambassadors and has to make sure that everything involving that area of the college runs smoothly. There is also a counseling side to his job as well. A typical day in his life is not your average 9-5 day.
