Undergraduate Counselors

Jeff Meeks, Admissions Counselor

One of the best parts about my position here at Warner is getting to know this generation of young people who want to further their education after high school. When you walk on this campus, attend classes and worship with other students in the chapel, you will soon find out that Warner truly cares about its students.
