Starr Boylan, Senior Admission Counselor
Hometown: Rome, Georgia
Degree: Bachelor of Science in Business Management, Berry College
What is the best time to be at Berry?
Fall, when the leaves are such beautiful colors and the weather is perfect.
What was the scariest thing about going off to college?
I was most afraid about finding my way around campus.
up in Rome, I had always been interested in attending Berry. As the
time grew nearer to make a college decision, I learned that Berry would
provide me with more than just a top notch education from a highly
regarded liberal arts college. Berry would also prepare me for a life
of service to others with practical work experience and opportunities
for spiritual growth.
While a student at Berry, I experienced
challenging coursework in what is now the Campbell School of Business
preparing me with the necessary skills to succeed in the world of work.
I was a member of Executive Round Table, an informational forum and
networking organization consisting of select business students, business
faculty, and leading industry professionals.
I participated in numerous intramural sports
activities including basketball, soccer, softball, tennis, and my
favorite, flag football. I was an active member of Circle K, a
leadership and community service club sponsored by Kiwanis
International. I was also involved in Baptist Student Union, now known
as Baptist Campus Ministries. I rarely missed BSU’s weekly
“LunchEncounter” and participated in a small group Bible study. I could
often be seen in the stands cheering on Vikings basketball and soccer,
and in the audience at various concerts and plays on campus.
As a student, I was employed at the Child
Development Center, an on campus laboratory preschool, as an assistant
teacher in the three year old class. My senior year, I served as the
office manager of the center.
Upon graduation from Berry in May 1993,
I was employed in the Office of Admissions as an admissions counselor.
I served in this capacity until 1997, when I resigned my position to
stay at home with my new son. During my time “off” from Berry, I taught
at and directed a preschool and served as children’s coordinator at my
church. When I had an opportunity to return to the admissions staff in
2007, I did not hesitate at the chance to come “home” to Berry.
Please feel free to contact me about your interest in Berry. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
