Biography

Welcome to the College of Computing & Informatics! My name is Will, and I am the interim Assistant Director of Undergraduate Advising in CCI.

I have been with CCI and Drexel since June of 2016. Prior to that, I worked as a Residence Hall Director at SUNY Cortland in upstate New York. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from SUNY Cortland and a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Towson University. I’m a bit of a comic book nerd (LOVE the MCU), love everything Gritty, and enjoy exploring the different neighborhoods in Philadelphia.

My advice for new students at Drexel:

  1. Explore the city! This is the birthplace of our country, and it is filled with fascinating history. My first year in Philly, I lived in Old City and loved seeing and learning about the liberty bell, Independence Hall, Elfreth’s Alley, the Betsy Ross house, etc. I’m still enamored by the cobblestone streets and original architecture found there. Learn how to use SEPTA and don’t be afraid to explore!
  2. There is so much opportunity at Drexel. If you want to do something but aren’t sure how, ask! We’re here because we want to help.
  3. Reflect on your current time management practices. The quarter system moves fast, and it’s important to stay on top of everything.
