Starr BoylanStarr Boylan, Senior Admissions Counselor

Hometown: Rome, Georgia
Alma Mater: Berry College, Rome, Georgia
Degree Earned: Bachelor of Science in Business Management, May 1993

Growing 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!
