Hello! My name is Kelsey Poholsky and I am an Admissions Counselor here at George Mason University, focusing on the greater New England area. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I am a graduate of Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania with degrees in Psychology and Organization and Management Studies. At Gettysburg, I worked in the Admissions Office as a tour guide and intern, studied abroad for a semester in England, served in a leadership position in my sorority, and conducted research within both departments of my majors.
My prior experiences in higher education made me passionate about working with students and I was certain that I wanted to pursue a career in Admissions. I sought out a university that reflected the same “community” feeling that my alma mater had, and I found that here at Mason. The diverse campus community is shaped by its driven students, dedicated and knowledgeable professors, and contagious school spirit! A college experience at Mason is founded on academics but grows through involvement, whether it is with research, student organizations, study abroad experiences, or internships. Mason offers all of these opportunities, allowing students to make connections and broaden their perspective academically, professionally, and personally. The university’s residential campus in Fairfax, Virginia enhances the community feel, and also provides students with unmatched access to Washington, D.C. where they can pursue professional opportunities and explore the thriving city.
As you search for the school that best fits your interests and goals, I am excited to share our amazing Mason campus community, and all that it has to offer, with you! If you have any questions or need any advice about the college search and application process, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to seeing you on campus hopefully soon! Go Patriots!
