Carrie Woodward

Director of Admissions

Hello and thank you for your interest in SUNY Plattsburgh. As the Director of Admissions, I have the great privilege of leading a fantastic team of professionals who are responsible for enrolling more than 1,000 new domestic undergraduate students each year. I oversee all functions of the admissions office, including strategic planning and analysis, application processing, scholarship review, campus visitation programs, and prospective student communication. In my role, I am called upon to interact with a wide-range of internal and external consultants including faculty and staff from academic and student affairs, as well as colleagues from secondary schools and community based organizations.

Professional/Personal Biography:  I received both my master's and bachelor's degrees from SUNY Plattsburgh. After working in non-profit community relations for four years, I returned to the College to serve as a member of the admissions team. I live in Plattsburgh with my husband and our two children. We spend much of our family time exploring this spectacular region in which we are located, whether it be boating on Lake Champlain in the summer or skating and snowboarding in the winter, we are happy to be a part of the Plattsburgh community.

Most memorable college experience: My senior-year, public relations internship at Georgia-Pacific. It was an invaluable experience.

Favorite SUNY Plattsburgh activity: I have always enjoyed Plattsburgh's outstanding theatre performances; I try to make it to at least one a semester.

Best advice you received regarding college or would give someone entering college: Manage your time well. College life brings a lot of independence, but with that comes responsibility. Don't procrastinate! If you set aside space in every day for studying and homework, then you'll find plenty of time for socializing and extracurricular activities.
