The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is excited to introduce the MSUM community to our newest Admissions Recruiters.

Trent Podskalan earned his Bachelor of Science in Multimedia Journalism from Northern Michigan University.

Audrey and Trent are exceptional professionals, who are very passionate about student access to higher education.  Both are enthusiastic and highly motivated to develop and sustain relationships with statewide and national high school guidance counselors and community college transfer coordinators to attract and recruit prospective freshman and transfer students to MSUM.  I am confident that their fresh ideas, sociable personalities, and zealous eagerness will significantly contribute to the success of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. So please join me in a hearty congratulations and warm welcome aboard to our newest Admissions Recruiters!

Also, join me in thanking the members of the search committee, chaired by Jim Anderson, for their excellent work and to Sherry Estrem and Deborah Rosenfeldt for their superb administrative support.
