New admissions counselor at New Kensington campus

10/24/2011 —



Justin Vorbach was named admissions counselor at Penn State New Kensington. Vorbach is responsible for recruiting and counseling prospective students with the focus on traditional aged students. In addition, he is advisor to the Lion Ambassadors, a student organization found on every campus of Penn State. Their mission is to serve the University, the student body and alumni by acting as representatives of the University.

"Justin brings both knowledge and enthusiasm about Penn State to this position," said Patty Brady, director of enrollment management. "He is passionate about the benefits of attending the New Kensington campus."

Vorbach, a native of Sewickley, Pa., is no stranger to Penn State or campus admissions responsibilities. He spent the past year working as an intern in the admissions office at Penn State Beaver, learning the duties that he is responsible for at the New Kensington campus. Vorbach earned a bachelor's degree in business marketing and management in May at Penn State Beaver, where he was the 2011 recipient of the Eric A. and Josephine S. Walker Award that is given to the student whose outstanding qualities of character, scholarship and leadership contribute to the prestige of the campus.

The Admissions office is cornering the market on Walker awardees as Vorbach is the second member of the staff to earn the distinction. Danielle DeStefano, a fellow admissions counselor, received the honor five years ago from the New Kensington campus.

To contact Vorbach, call 724-334-6018 or send an email to jav5121@psu.edu.
