Meet the admissions and academic services staff:
Maureen Carroll, director of admissions: Congratulations! I am so pleased to welcome you to your graduate studies at Cornell University. I had the privilege of watching your application rise to the top in the selection process, and while I might not have a reason to see you again until graduation, please feel free to stop by to say hello.
Cheyanne Frutchey, service associate: If you are not sure who to see or where to go with questions or concerns about class enrollment or petitions, I am your first point of contact. You can find me at the front desk in Sibley Dome. Stop by and introduce yourself—I look forward to meeting you.
Andrew Meis, coordinator for global study: I am here to give advice about the off-campus opportunities available to AAP students, particularly Cornell in Rome and AAP NYC. When the time comes for you to pursue one of these programs, I will guide you through the application process and prepare you to spend a semester studying away from the Ithaca campus.
Andrea Kiely, assistant director: Your college experience will be full of exciting opportunities, and my role is to support your well-being and help you navigate resources within AAP, across the university, and throughout the local community. Whether you are dealing with academic or personal challenges, need some encouragement, or just have a question, I am available to talk.
Stephanie Resue, admissions associate: It was a pleasure meeting many of you during the admissions process. If you would like to be a part of welcoming our next cohort of AAP students, please consider becoming an AAP Ambassador! Come see me for more details.
Adrienne Wilson, college registrar: Welcome to AAP at Cornell! Navigating class options while ensuring you take your required classes can be confusing at times. If you need any assistance planning your semesters, or have questions about degree requirements, I'm happy to assist you.
