Director of Admissions
As executive director of admissions, Nick strives to provide others with the same positive experience that he had as a BVU student. “What I enjoyed most about Buena Vista University, and continue to enjoy as an employee, is the passion that faculty and staff exude. Everyone takes pride in what we have to offer from academics, to exciting co-curriculars and the great facilities.”
Nick is originally from Glenwood and graduated from BVU in 2006. He began working as an admissions counselor at a for-profit university where he was promoted to director of admissions. He then assumed the director of admissions position at Midland University and earned his MBA in 2014. Nick also has experience working in enrollment management, financial aid, and retention thanks to his time working at Iowa Wesleyan.
In 2018, Nick made the move back home to BVU where he says students thrive in a supportive environment with amazing, affordable opportunities. “It’s hard to imagine all that’s available at BVU without visiting and seeing our lakeside location for yourself, so I always encourage students to schedule a visit.” He adds that now is a special time to be a Beaver because everyone on campus has a voice, and there are new ideas popping up each and every day.
In his off time, Nick’s hobbies include outdoor activities such as boating and camping with his wife Hannah and their two sons, Chandler and Cooper.
