Hello everyone! We’re excited to begin our new blog, and hope that you will check back frequently to hear what’s going on in the world of Holy Cross Admissions.
My name is Lynn Verrecchia. I grew up in Port Chester, NY and first came to Holy Cross as a student 1997. I chose Holy Cross for many of the same reasons I hear students mention today, including our close-knit community and focus on creating well-rounded individuals.
I began my admissions career in 2002, and returned to Holy Cross in my current role just over three years ago. I love having the opportunity to talk with students about a college that has played such an important role in my own life. I work with over 65 student volunteers in our tour guide program. Some of you may have already attended a tour at Holy Cross, and I hope that you found our students to be as friendly, genuine and helpful as I have.
I recently purchased my first home with my husband, a fellow Holy Cross grad, in Somerville, MA. Much of our time is now spent in Lowe’s or on the Home Depot website. True loves of my life include foreign language, travel, cookies and Alton Brown.
My recruitment territories include Texas, Tennessee, Maine, and parts of Massachusetts. I hope to see many of you "on the road", and others on campus this fall! I truly believe in the importance of finding the right "fit" in a college. Happy searching!
Assistant Director of Admissions
