Admissions Team

Andrea Thomas

Associate Director of Admissions

Other Roles at Westminster: Second Girls’ Ice Hockey Coach, Advisor 
Originally from: Lancaster, Pa.
Home away from home: West Hartford
Favorite Westminster event: Opening Days. We get to know prospective families well during the admissions process, and are so excited to have our incoming class arrive. Plus, it is great to have the whole community back together after summer adventures.
Favorite place on campus: Armstrong Dining Hall. Not only is it an amazing building with beautiful views of Talcott Mountain, it is also a great place to catch up with students, faculty and staff.
Admissions tip: Make connections. Stay in touch with admissions counselors you meet throughout the process. We are here to help you, and want to get to know more about you.
Spend a day with: As a lifelong NPR listener and an attorney, I think it would be interesting to spend a day with Nina Totenberg, who has covered the U.S. Supreme Court for decades. Plus, I had the opportunity to work with her sister, who is now a U.S. District Judge, while in law school.
Free plane ticket: I lived in Tokyo for a couple of years, and would love to take my son to visit his first home. While in Asia, I would also like to stop in Hong Kong, where he was born (it’s a long story!), and visit mainland China, which I did not have a chance to do while living in Japan.
Fun fact: I was a member of Colgate University’s first Varsity Women’s Ice Hockey Team.
