Ryan Kelley's first experience with working in college admission came as a tour guide at Stonehill College. He began his professional career as an admission counselor at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. Working in such a small admission office provided him the opportunity to learn all aspects of the admission process from recruitment and application review to operations and yield events. After RWU, Ryan moved to NYC to work at Fordham University. His time there included working as the Honors College liaison and overseeing the transfer admission process. His most recent role in college admission came at the University of Colorado Boulder. Here, he continued working closely with transfer students but also oversaw the freshman admissions application review process. This role gave Ryan the responsibility to chair the admission and scholarship committees and to work with a wide variety of representatives from across campus in creating an academically strong, diverse and wellrounded class made up of unique students.
