Hello! I’m Aimee Huffstetler and I’m the AVP for Enrollment here at Gwynedd Mercy University. Like you, I recently took part in a college search myself when looking to make the next step in my career. I chose GMercyU for many of the same reasons our students do – the Mercy values, feeling of community, and the opportunity to pursue my passion. I look forward to working with you!

Assistant Director of Admissions

Call/Text: 215-542-4609 

Dan recruits first-year students. 

 Favorite Admissions Tip: Don’t stop asking questions, and no idea is ever wrong. College has a “right of passage” sense, but sometimes students can feel alone in that passage. I never want a student to ever feel isolated/alone in their process, I am here to help them through this transformational experience. I am always ready to talk, hear them out, and help them through their journey. And, who doesn’t love college?!

Alexis AlfordAlexis Alford, BS
Multicultural Admissions Counselor

Call/Text: 215-641-5514 

Alexis recruits first-year students. 

 Favorite Admissions Tip: Stay focused on what's best for you, whether that's attending a local university so you can be close to home or applying undeclared your first year so you can narrow down a career field that interests you. Explore colleges with an open mind and do not fret the small stuff — that's what we're here for!

Bryan PlonskiBryan Plonski
Admissions Counselor

Call/Text: 215-641-5528 

Bryan recruits first-year students. 

 Favorite Admissions Tip:  Don't forget about scholarships! There's probably one out there for you. No matter how small, every little bit helps. You have to remember books are probably going to be required and an important cost of your college life — spending an hour of your life writing an essay to earn a $500 scholarship is a simple and easy way to potentially pay for them! 

Meet a GMercyU admissions counselor at a high school visit, college fair, or information session. See if we're coming to your area!
