Hi, my name is Lance Engels and I am an Admissions Recruiter at Rochester University. I am thrilled to work on a campus that genuinely cares about each and every one of its students. I realize deciding what college to attend is a huge decision. It is my goal every day to help prospective students learn what RU can offer them so that they can reach their fullest potential.
I did my undergrad at Michigan State University where I received dual degrees in Media & Information and Communication. I was a Student Coordinator in the Orientation Office on campus and it is here that I developed a true passion for student success as I helped students navigate the scary college transition.
In my free time I enjoy both running and photography. I find both are a great way to take time for introspection and de-stress from the crazy day to day. I am a huge podcast nerd and have really immersed myself in others’ stories through podcasts. My favorite one is “Up and Vanished,” check it out!
