Patrick

Assistant Director of Enrollment

On JCU’s enrollment staff since 2014

  • Hometown: Vandergrift, Pennsylvania
  • High School: Kiski Area High School
  • Degrees: B.A. (political science), John Carroll University; M.A., Boston College
  • Hobbies and Interests: Spending time with family and friends, college basketball, live music, and new restaurants.
  • Guilty pleasures: Fantasy football and Swenson’s drive-in.
  • Favorite thing about JCU: The great relationships that students are able to form with faculty and peers. As an undergraduate, I had many classes that had fewer than 15 students. In that type of setting, you build amazing connections with both professors and classmates.
  • Favorite places in Cleveland: The Tremont and Ohio City neighborhoods (particularly the restaurants).
  • Advice for prospective students: Make sure you are visiting schools. It’s the best way to know whether or not that particular school is a good “fit.” Also, never underestimate that “gut feeling” you get when you are on a visit and the school just seems to feel right.

I serve as the enrollment manager for students and families from:

  • Ohio (Cuyahoga-Northwest, Cuyahoga-East, Geauga, and Lake Counties)
  • Southwest (Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas)
  • West (Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming
