Hola a todos! I’m Jacqueline Lopez, and I am an Admissions Counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at NC State. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2017 with majors in Latin American Studies and Public Policy, but I’ve been proudly representing the Wolfpack for almost two years. I am a first-generation college student, hija de inmigrantes from Mexico, and I’m passionate about college access and cooking delicious meals. Nos vemos pronto!
My name is Joselyn Barrientos and I am an Admissions Counselor in the NC State University Office of Undergraduate Admissions. I started my role as an Admissions Counselor in September 2019. I am an alumna of NC State and graduated in May 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in International Studies and a minor in Spanish. I grew up in a Costa Rican family in the Lake Norman area, but made my way to Raleigh when I left home for college. Being a first generation college student from a migrant family, I’m excited to share some awesome resources with you all!
