Hi there, future Belles! My name is Sara Woroncow, and I am an Admission Counselor here at Saint Mary’s College. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, but made the move to northern Indiana for this position. I became passionate about working at Saint Mary’s because I attended an all-female high school back home, and also graduated from a small, liberal arts college. I strongly believe in the effectiveness of combining a female learning environment with a liberal arts curriculum, and I am so fortunate that I was able to experience both throughout my education. Now it’s time to pass it along to future students! I am so excited to spread the mission of Saint Mary’s to women around the United States, and I can’t wait to be a resource for you. Our campus and community have so much to offer our students, and I can’t wait to hopefully welcome you to the Saint Mary’s family soon!

How welcoming the community is. I was new to Saint Mary’s before this job, and I have felt comfortable, wanted, and welcomed since I first stepped foot on campus. Our students feel the same way! I love working on a campus where everyone says “hello” and “good morning”, and where everyone is so supportive of one another.
