Marywood Admissions Staff

Tammy Manka

Associate Director for Graduate Recruitment
Phone: 570-348-6234 ext 2322

About me: I joined the Graduate Admissions staff in September 2007, but began my career in higher education as an undergraduate admissions counselor at Marywood in 2002.  I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Arts and a Master's Degree in Higher Education, both from Marywood.

My interests: I enjoy bowling, shopping, gardening, watching Law and Order, spending time with family and friends, as well as my mini Schnauzer Socks!

My favorite thing about Marywood:  My favorite thing about Marywood University is the campus itself. It has beautiful scenery, especially in the fall with the autumn foliage.

My favorite place on campus:  The first floor of Regina Hall. The area holds a lot of history for Marywood - dating back to the 1920's. 

You'd never guess:  I love to sing karaoke - anything from pop to country music!

My best advice: Know the educational plan you want to achieve and learn how to balance your academic life and personal life early on. It’s all achievable with a plan!
