Kristen Glasener

Greetings! I’m originally from Centerville, Ohio, a suburb just south of Dayton. My love for working with prospective students began in college when I served as an admissions tour guide (and mastered the talent of walking backwards while talking) at Ohio State. In addition to working in admissions, some of my favorite experiences in college were participating in clinical psychology research, studying abroad in Cyprus, Greece, and volunteering at a local youth organization.

After graduation, I spent two years in Boston where I earned a Master of Social Work degree from Boston University. Upon completing my M.S.W., I returned to Ohio and worked for a college access program serving low-income, first generation and underrepresented students in Columbus, Ohio. Most recently, I was the college counselor and Ninde Scholars coordinator at Oberlin High School. I am excited to be part of the admissions staff at Oberlin College and to represent such an outstanding and vibrant college community.

There are so many things I love about Oberlin. The close-knit community, passionate, smart and creative students, a commitment to sustainability and diversity, and dedicated faculty are just a few of my favorite things.

I would love to help you learn about the unique opportunities available at Oberlin College and hope to see you during my visits to Minnesota, Missouri, New York, Southwest Ohio, and Tennessee. In addition to traveling and reading applications, I am also part of our Campus Visit team and would love to help you and your family set up a trip to campus, so please feel free to contact me anytime. I look forward to meeting you soon!
