    Macaela Holmes Fuller

    Assistant Director of Admission

    Works with prospective students from Colorado, as well as international students outside of China and Japan.

Hometown: Breckenridge, Colo.

About me: I am a 2010 graduate of Grinnell College where I majored in Sociology and completed an American Studies concentration. As a student, I was the executive council chair of the Student Alumni Association, worked as a student manager for the phonathon program, served as Editor-in-Chief for a student publication, lived as a Student Advisor and completed a summer research project that focused on planning for end of life care. My hobbies include reading, cooking, and traveling.  I also spend a lot of time starting projects I find on Pinterest. Luckily, my brave fiancé has a knack for finishing those projects when I get frustrated! I have four pets:  two Tiger cats named Ansel and Ike, a Russian Blue cat named Dill (who I rescued from a snow bank one winter night in Iowa), and a Yellow Lab puppy named Mae. I grew up in Breckenridge, Colorado and am only sort of sad that I traded the rocky mountains for the rolling hills of Iowa (it’s not flat, I promise!).

One place I recommend students visit on campus: The hammock overlooking Ink Pond. It is a great spot to reflect over your day…or take a quick cat nap before your afternoon class session.

What I can do for you: I am here to teach prospective students about all that Cornell College has to offer. You can find me in my office on campus or traveling to college fairs, high schools, and off-campus interviews. I am here to guide you through the college process. I can answer questions about Cornell College and the entire college search. Whether you are trying to figure out how to complete the Common Application, how to interact with a professor, or what to bring when you are moving to small town Iowa, I am just a quick call, e-mail, or text away!
