Get to know Shane

Where are you from?

The heart of the Bluegrass State - Lexington, KY

Which Admissions office programs are you involved in?

A little bit of everything – ‘Dore for a Day, MOSAIC, PreVU, Black & Gold Days, Road Shows, and the Chancellor’s Scholarship Program

What’s your favorite spot on campus?

I’m partial to Peabody since I’m finishing up a Master’s program there, so I love Peabody lawn. On beautiful days, you will find students out there eating lunch, throwing frisbee, or napping in a hammock.

What hobby do you wish you had more time for?

I'm an avid golfer and try to keep my game in shape, but I certainly wish I had more time to get out and tee it up.

What did you study in college?

I was a Biology and Religion double major. I love tackling the science vs. religion debate.

If you could go to college again, what major would you choose?

I would definitely keep the Religion, but I think I would change the Biology to Economics (or HOD if I went to Vanderbilt).

What is the hardest class you have ever taken?

Organic Chemistry II for sure. I still remember when my professor handed me an unknown substance at the beginning of the semester and said, “Figure out what it is and make three compounds with it by the end of the semester. Good luck.”

What’s your favorite off-campus hangout?

Fido - It's a great place to grab a cup of coffee or a delicious egg scramble and hang out with friends.

What’s the best concert you’ve seen in Nashville?

Kings of Leon at Bridgestone Arena

What is the moment you knew you were a Nashvillian?

When I started talking about hot chicken like it's a normal thing

What is your favorite place to eat in Nashville?

The Pharmacy (awesome burgers, homemade shakes/sodas, and great outdoor eating area) followed by Jeni’s ice cream. It will change your life forever.

What celebrity would play you in the movie of your life?

John Krasinski

Do you have pets?

I’m a dog lover and have a 2 year old, very special pup named Cami.

If you weren't an admissions counselor, what would you be?

Hypothetically speaking, I would be a professional golfer. Realistically, I would be a high school teacher/coach or college professor.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can't Lose.
