Phone and E-mail Communications

A quick response is essential in evolving a recruit into a student. It is important to answer phone calls or e-mails from prospective students in a timely fashion (within 24–48 hours). Please e-mail Eberly College meeting with the Executive In Residenceany direct inquiries that you may have received, including:

  • the recruit’s name,
  • program of study,
  • and his or her e-mail address to the Graduate Admissions office at so that his or her information may be loaded into Hobson’s Connect immediately.

When responding via e-mail, remember:

  • We try to keep these short, and the focus is on you (the prospective student) and not about us (the faculty, the managers, the university). Talking about us doesn’t work. We talk about what we can do for you and why you should come here. 
  • It is helpful for you to know what is sent and when. For example, you, as the coordinator, do not need to talk about financial aid because that is covered in an e-mail that is being sent. 
  • Your e-mails are the ones that are most important for you to review. If you have edits to your e-mails, please send them to
  • Of course, e-mails that are not from you cannot be edited or deleted. If you see something wrong there, please e-mail
