Who She Is
Assistant Director of Admissions for the Graduate School of Social Service (GSS) and the Fordham Veterans Entry Advisor.
What She Does
Treantafeles supports and assists the admission of students for the GSS, and also helps assist veterans who are interested in attending the University. “Instead of having all veterans go through separate doors at Fordham, it was decided that they would have someone there to greet them when they had questions or an interest in coming to Fordham, sort of like a concierge. So, my job is to send them to the right contacts in each department. Sometimes I get people that call and just want to have a chat. I once had a guy talk to me about the best pastries in Germany and how much he didn’t like the tea in Afghanistan. Another called and talked about dogs. But for the most part, people are focused, and sometimes nervous and anxious because they are looking at this university as a big deal, which of course it is. I always want them to feel more relaxed.”
