Admissions Counselor

Makeda Ellis, assistant director of admissions


Hello, my name is Makeda Ellis, and I am the Assistant Director of Transfer Recruitment at BU. My office is located off site in Center City Philadelphia in the PASSHE office. For those of you that are wondering what that stands for, Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. I spend much of my time at Bucks County Community College, Community College of Philadelphia, and Delaware County Community College and its surrounding areas working with talented transfer students interested in BU’s programs. When not at the PASSHE office, I have the pleasure assisting with Transfer Days and other activities on the Bloomsburg University campus.

I first got to know BU after visiting friends who attended and I soon understand why it is so love by alumnus, faculty, staff, new and current students. BU offers a place for students to connect with one another, express themselves, and learn from faculty who are supportive and knowledgeable in all areas. It is a place you were you can create new memories and have an amazing college experience.
