Catherine Pineda – Freshman Admissions Counselor

Catherine Pineda – Freshman Admissions CounselorAs an Admissions Counselor, I’m here to help you learn about Marymount and to make the college admissions process less intimidating. In 2017, I was a low-income, first-generation Latina searching for the perfect college to attend, and as a Marymount alumna, it is my honor to help you become a Marymount Saint! As an undergraduate student, I worked on campus and participated in a wide variety of student organizations. One of my favorite things about Marymount other than our tight-knit community is how class often ties into serving our community, whether it’s locally in Arlington or across the globe. If you’re interested in becoming a well-rounded individual, don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or via email. Marymount emphasizes intellectual curiosity, serving others, and helping students gain a global perspective.

Best College Search Process Tip

Start your college search as soon as possible, even as a sophomore. Make a list of what you’re looking for in a college or university (location, size, cost, academic program, campus life, etc.). Browse college websites, attend events on campus, and discuss your plans with your family. Don’t forget to visit campuses and connect with current students at the schools you are considering. They are a wealth of knowledge as well!
