Hello! My name is Brandy Norman and I am a 2014 graduate of the University of the Cumberlands. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Arts. If you are interested in UC and live in the region of Eastern Kentucky then I will be your admissions counselor. I also work with students from Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Maine, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Delaware, New Jersey and Rhode Island. What can I say...I love the East Coast! UC is a wonderful place full of opportunities for you to explore. I chose to call UC my home as a student because of the welcoming atmosphere and the sense of community I felt here. As a graduate, I still chose to call UC home because of the connections I made and the love I have for this small town and gorgeous campus.

There are many opportunities at UC to get involved on campus and meet new people! We have intermural athletics, outdoor adventure, various clubs and organizations, marching band, choir, a campus newspaper, community service projects, Christian leadership, athletics, study abroad programs and lots more!

At UC, the professors truly care about their students and are dedicated to making sure they succeed. If you are looking for a one-on-one personal connection with your professor, UC might be the place for you! I would love to make that connection with you as well and help you through your college admission process. If you have any questions about UC or your college search in general, feel free to contact me. Thank you for your interest in UC and I look forward to speaking with you!
