Why Herkimer College:  As a proud graduate of Herkimer College, I’m thrilled to work with prospective students who are considering this great College. Herkimer College offers AAS, AA, AS, certificate degrees and transfer opportunities with four-year SUNY Colleges and other private universities. You can attend Herkimer College and then transfer to complete your Bachelor’s degree, which many of our students do. Herkimer College offers small classes, dedicated faculty and staff, residential housing close to our dining services, strong academic programs, and outstanding athletic teams. I believe that Herkimer has something to offer every student and I’m happy to help you realize why Herkimer College is the right fit!

Advice for Herkimer College Applicants: Ask questions. You can always reach out to our dedicated admissions staff with any questions that you may have. I also encourage you to visit our beautiful campus by attending one of our open houses or by setting up a campus visit to tour the campus and speak with an admissions assistant. I’m excited to connect with you at your high school or college fair. Make sure to reach out to me so we can discuss the admissions process and all that Herkimer has to offer.

Hobbies:  My second home is in the kitchen cooking and baking. I enjoy working on my home and spending time with my family and friends. I’m also a certified Pound Pro and teach the drumming based cardio workout at a studio here in town.

Favorite Restaurant in Herkimer:  Greek Gyros or Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner. The food at Greek Gyros is both amazing and authentic, and the diner is a 50’s decor classic (awesome!). 

Why Herkimer College:  Herkimer College truly is a very friendly place where people really care about you as a person. Faculty and staff want you to succeed, and students tell us all the time they wish we were a four year school! With everything a four-year college has to offer, I think Herkimer is a great place to start your education or earn a degree to advance your career. 

Advice for Herkimer College Applicants:  Campus visits are extremely important. Check it all out – the classrooms, the students, majors, student activities, athletics, the faculty and staff.  Don’t stop at just the campus itself either; check out the local area. It’s all about finding a place you feel comfortable and where you can thrive. There are so many options and each college has a different vibe and feel. Shop around, explore your options and make an informed decision. I’m pretty biased, but I do think Herkimer is a great college town and the College itself is a great fit for so many students!

Hobbies:  I enjoy doing outdoor activities such as running, hiking, kayaking, boating and camping. I also enjoy working around my house and spending time with family and friends. 

Favorite Restaurant in Herkimer:  Dominic’s Deli

Why Herkimer College:  Working at Herkimer College for six years has given me the opportunity to work with a wide array of students from difficult backgrounds and experiences. I am a proud product of obtaining an associate’s degree from a community college and I find Herkimer to be very hands-on and student focused. We consistently hear how our faculty and staff really care for our students with personalized attention and support services. We offer several clubs and organizations and opportunities for students to work on campus. I invite you to come visit our campus and speak to our current students and see why Herkimer is a great place to start or continue with your educational endeavors. Come see why so many students call Herkimer their second home.     

Advice for Herkimer College Applicants:  Some of the best advice that I can give junior and senior students is to take AP courses, accelerated college classes and/or college level classes. This will give you a head start to the expectations and material covered in college and you will often get credit for the courses you have taken. Try not to lesson your senior year but challenge yourself by taking something new.  Even though you may have your heart set on a certain school, make sure you look at several as you never know which one may feel just right. Do your research when considering schools…. Look at it enrollment, costs, location, dorms, athletics, etc. We at Herkimer are always willing to assist with your questions. Hope to see you soon!
