My name is Alex Marcus and I’m an admissions counselor here at Bluefield College. I graduated in May of 2011 with a B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!). Throughout my time in Knoxville, I was involved in Student Government, my local church, and was also a volunteer Young Life leader. In these roles, I learned how to effectively communicate with others and how to engage in meaningful relationships. Upon graduation, I interned at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., where I served as the Policy Intern. In this position, I researched and wrote about various public policy related issues. Then, I hit the campaign trail, raising funds for various house and senate candidates during the Fall 2012 election season. While I enjoyed my time in D.C., getting back into the educational setting was something that had been in the back of my mind for a while. I’m so excited to be a part of the Bluefield College family and would love to help in any way that I can as you go through the college application process. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
