About Georgiana

Hi! I am Georgiana Mejia, Georgie for short should my 4-syllable first name be too tricky. I am a recent addition to the Admission team and becoming an Admission Counselor for the college has been a huge blessing for me as I have been on a professional journey finding myself for the last six years. A little bit about me! I was originally born in Odobesti, Romania but have moved around about 15 times. I am an adventurer at heart for sure. I completed my Bachelors in Entrepreneurship and Retail Management at Central Michigan University in 2016 and put that degree to use by starting my own hammocking company that partnered with local homeless shelters to alleviate homelessness. In addition to having owned my own company, I worked in Account and Inventory Management for the last six years. I am thrilled to be part of the Admission team and share my global background experience with any prospective or incoming students.

Georgiana's Admission Tip for Prospective Students

Don't be shy when it comes to asking what your personal and professional journey will look like as a student. Competition keeps growing when it comes to getting a competitive college experience that will financially pay off upon graduating. You want to make sure you know what to expect holistically from your college of choice.
