Donna Kendall
Associate Vice President of Enrollment and Dean of Undergraduate Admission

Favorite Bentley Moment: I enjoy serving pancakes at midnight to hungry students prior to final exams at the semi-annual Breakfast By Moonlight, sponsored by the Residence Hall Association. I have never seen so many pancakes consumed in such a short period of time. And the students all have a blast connecting with each other before they buckle down to study.

Jake Mulvey
Senior Associate Director of Undergraduate Admission

Bentley Advice: Take your time while filling out the application and make sure that you have a counselor or teacher review your essay. Also, if you feel that you cannot convey everything that you would like to on the application itself, do not hesitate to send along a resume with your application.

Kalianni Neal-Desatnik
Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admission

My advice throughout the college search is to make sure a campus has all the resources and opportunities that make a place home for you. Have you ever wanted to take up ceramics or student newspaper? Maybe you're looking to continue a sport or study abroad. Connect with these organizations and clubs because they could be your peers soon enough!

Joseph Spero
Associate Director of Undergraduate Admission

Favorite Bentley Event: My favorite event by far is Admitted Student Day. Not only is this the day when faculty, staff and current students come together to congratulate all of the admitted students on their hard work and achievements, but we are also welcoming them to the Bentley Community!

Viviana Suavita
Associate Director of Undergraduate Admission
Native Spanish Speaker

Bentley Advice: If you can, start your college search process junior year. You will be surprised how quickly senior year comes and how busy it will be. Start researching or simply looking early. By the time fall comes, you want to have an organized list of schools you’re applying to and, hopefully, visiting if you haven’t already. Listen to your gut! As cliche as it may sound, you will know when a school is a good fit for you.

Diana Sunder

Emma Tichner
Assistant Director

Favorite Bentley Moment: When prospective students come back from a campus tour and tell us they love Bentley, often because of the great connection they had with their tour guide. Bentley students are so passionate, well-spoken, and incredibly driven and it's rewarding to see them connect with families going through the college search process.
