My name is Bernadette Fagarang, but most people just call me Bernie. I am originally from the Lone Star state of Texas. After graduating high school I moved down to the Carolina region to attend Belmont Abbey College. In 2005 I graduated with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Psychology. As a student at Belmont Abbey I was very active with the theatre and music program. However, most of my time was devoted as a member of the Student Ambassadors. It was from my experience assisting students and families in the college process that I decided to get into the world of Higher Education and Admissions
I was drawn to join the Admissions team at Winthrop University because of my belief that a school should focus on the individual to inspire educational development. With my background coming from a smaller institution, I was very impressed with the small class sizes offered at Winthrop University. These classes are ideal for students to learn and develop strong relationships with their professors and peers. As a Winthrop student you are seen more as an individual rather than just an anonymous number.
If you are interested in the vast variety of programs and organizations offered at Winthrop, I highly encourage you to visit campus and spend a day with our faculty and students. I know that deciding which college to attend can be difficult and somewhat stressful. If you have any questions feel free to contact me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be more than happy to help you through the admissions process
I look forward to seeing you on campus!
