Jason Thiel

Undergraduate Admissions Counselor

About me: I recently joined the Marywood Admissions team in the summer of 2013.  I was born and raised in Scranton, PA and earned my BA in Business Administration with a concentration in Business Management from Marywood University.  I have over 8 years of admissions experience and love helping students and families find the right educational fit.

My interests:  I enjoy spending time with my family, whether it's movie night with my wife, dance recitals for my daughter, or baseball with my son.  I also enjoy, coaching youth sports, traveling, Phillies baseball, Syracuse basketball, and Dolphins football.  You may also find me watching reruns of Animal Planets TV show, Finding Bigfoot!

My favorite thing about Marywood: The feel!!  I love walking around campus and talking to students and meeting with staff & faculty.  It’s a beautiful campus spread out over 115 acres but still has that small hometown feel to it. 

My favorite place at Marywood: There isn’t a place I don’t like.  If I had to pick it would have to be the Rotunda.  It is beautiful and I went from studying in it as a student to now walking through it on my way to my office in the admissions department.

You’d never guess: I have trained for and completed 5 Marine Corp Marathons and my goal is 20.  Why I torture myself I do not know.

Best advice: Do your homework.  Find a school you love and a major that you are excited about.  Do truly what you love because you will work for 40-50 years of your life and LIVE YOUR PASSION.
