Hello! My name is Ryan James, and I am from a small town on the coast of Maine. As a 2014 graduate of Berry College in Georgia, I am passionate about the liberal arts education model and its unparalleled value in preparing students for an increasingly complex world. As a new member to the Hood College and Frederick communities, I can say that you will not find a more welcoming or beautiful place. Hood College is truly a place that you can call, ‘Home.’
I enjoy running long distances, watching hockey, reading the news and sharing terrible puns. I’m occasionally punny, but not terribly funny. I look forward to working with you throughout the admission process and I hope you will visit soon!
