Ileana Santos-Gonzalez is an Admissions Counselor at Drexel University, located in Philadelphia, PA. As an admissions counselor, she speaks with prospective students, helps guide them through the application process, reads applications, and visits high schools. Ileana is originally from Fresno, CA and moved to Philadelphia to attend the University of Pennsylvania where she graduated with a BA in Psychology. As a student, she was an active member of the Penn and Latino community and spoke with many high school students about opportunities in higher education. One of her goals is to motivate historically under represented students to pursue higher education and consider opportunities outside of their home state, to expand their world view. Ileana strives to be a driving force in creating change at universities and sees her role as an opportunity to increase the level of diversity and talent in higher education.
