Hello! My name is Kelly Cardew and I’m an admissions counselor here at George Mason University. Originally from South Carolina, I’m excited to join the team and bring a little bit of the south to Northern Virginia. I’m on the hunt for real sweet tea, so if you know a place please let me know! J
I’m starting my second year of being an admissions counselor; however, I’ve already logged many years of working in admissions by being a student ambassador and student intern at Newberry College. During my time at Newberry, I was also a student athlete and played on the soccer team. I learned so many things being a collegiate athlete, such as being a team player, working hard, and cherishing every special moment and I intend to carry those lessons into my work as an admissions counselor.
One of the biggest reasons why I decided to work at Mason is because I can see how much of an impact this university has on students. No matter who you are or what you want to become, you have a voice here on campus and you will be given the tools to make your voice count out in the world.
I know that choosing a college can seem like a daunting and challenging task but it can also be a very special and fun time in your life. I hope that during this time you will be encouraged to seek out your home away from home, and I also hope I can help you with that journey. I would love to hear from you about any questions you might have about the college search process at Mason. Go Patriots!
