The newest addition to Washington State University’s admissions team had once said, “If I ever got the chance to work for my alma mater, I would consider my life goals to be made.” Four years later, Jennifer Kearby’s wish came true as she became the Southern California Admission Counselor for WSU! fullsizerender-2

Graduating a year early, Jennifer received her B.A. in English from Washington State University, and she continued on to graduate school receiving her M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Chapman University. Her passion for higher-education is what led her to admissions, but her experience as an undergraduate at WSU is what kept her there. She hopes that each freshman class finds and fosters the same love for the Cougar community as she did.

Although she enjoys the warm weather of Southern California (and not to mention, In-N-Out), Jennifer will never stop referring to Pullman as her home. She continues to show her WSU pride by attending SoCal Cougs events or simply sporting her Coug gear everywhere she goes!

Jennifer encourages you and your students to contact her and ask any questions about Washington State University or college in general. Jennifer can be reached via e-mail jennifer_kearby@wsu.edu or by phone (509) 969-9975.

All of our Admission Counselors are available to attend college fairs, scholarship nights, personal statement/essay workshops, admission presentations, personal visits to high schools, and more. To find which WSU representative serves your school, please visit the “Find Your Rep” website.
