The college admission process can seem confusing at times. That’s why we created Admission 101, a podcast about the college search. Join Suzanne Cuccurullo, dean of the Undergraduate Admissions at Bentley University, and Mario Silva-Rosa, our director of Undergraduate Admission, as they share their best tips and advice for finding — and getting into — your dream school. Seasons 1 and 2 are now available for download on iTunes!

Suzanne Cuccurullo
Dean of Undergraduate Admission

Suzanne was born in St. Louis, but grew up in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. In 2009, she made a career change and decided to use her marketing skills to help students through the admission process at Bentley University. This is the best job she's ever had. As a mother of college students, Suzanne knows the college search process can be stressful but hopes we can make it an incredible adventure.
