Eric Sickler

Admission Marketing Strategist

Hometown: Corning, Iowa

Degree: B.A. (Central College)

Undergraduate major: Communications

What I love about my job: Our recruitment marketing strategy ensures that the college delivers the right information about the right topics to the right students at the right time using the most appropriate communication channels. Helping prospective students and their families make informed, enlightened college choices is exciting and extraordinarily gratifying. 

What I love about Grinnell: Having worked with literally hundreds of colleges during the course of my career, I can honestly say that Grinnell is remarkably authentic and authentically remarkable: enlightened thinkers with huge hearts who aren't afraid to share their passions generously.

Hobbies/activities: I make music, throw great parties, soak up nature, and contribute to my very active local community.

Advice about searching for schools: Start early (first two years of high school) and visit often, if you can. Ask the same set of probing questions of every school on your list, and organize the responses on a spreadsheet.

Advice about applying to schools: More is not better. Challenge yourself to develop a short, short list so both you and the schools to which you apply can pay each other the attention you — and we — need to meet your information and decision-making needs.
