Assistant Director of Admissions
Hello everyone, my name is Ashley Spencer and I am one of the Assistant Directors of Admissions here at Lock Haven University. In the fall, I will be traveling to high schools and college fairs in the eastern and southeastern part of Pennsylvania. If you are a high school student in that area, I would love to have the opportunity to meet you. Please check with your guidance office to see when I may be visiting your school.
I am originally from Clarks Summit, PA (outside Scranton) and I graduated from Abington Heights High School in 2003. In 2008, I received my bachelor’s degree in Art Education from Mansfield University. After graduating, I was hired as an admissions counselor there and spent the fall traveling and meeting students. It was at this point that I found my passion for student affairs, and enjoyed assisting high school students find a college that would fit their needs and interests. I continued my education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania where I receive my master’s in Student Affairs in Higher Education this past May.
After graduating from IUP, I had the opportunity to continue working in the State System of PA, here at Lock Haven University. When first visiting this institution I found that everyone was very welcoming and genuine in their thoughts and actions. Finding a place to work is much like finding a college and Lock Haven was my perfect fit. This campus is set in the middle of the beautiful central PA Mountains, right next to the Susquehanna River, which offers an aesthetically pleasing view from all part of campus. What I like most about The Haven is that students are not just a number but seen as individuals. Students are able to get to know their professors on a professional level through courses and advising sessions. Students here are the institution’s number one priority and they want to see them succeed.
As a high school senior looking for a college, it was important for me to find a place where I felt comfortable and could relate to those around me. Lock Haven University has much to offer its students and I welcome you to come to our campus and meet some of our wonderful faculty and staff. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment for a campus visit.
