Hello Future Husky! My name is Ryan Allen and I am ecstatic to be your admissions counselor!
I am a Houston native and a first generation college graduate with a bachelor’s degree in advertising from Texas Tech University. I have two years of admissions experience in higher education and I have also served over 1,700 hours as an AmeriCorps member at a Houston high school where I assisted low income, undocumented, and first generation students with college access and readiness. This type of service allowed me to give back to the students in my community who were just like me when I began my higher education journey. This helped me to realize my passion in guiding others towards the opportunity of pursuing their educational dreams.
I can’t wait to walk alongside you as you make your first steps towards your college education. It is my pleasure to assist you in one of the most important decisions of your life. I hope you’re ready, because here we go!
