Madison Ewing, Admissions Counselor

Madison Ewing chose William Penn University for her education because of the small class sizes, the affordability, and the fact that everyone makes students feel like they’re at home here.  One of her favorite aspects about the university is that William Penn welcomes students from all minorities, races, genders, sexual orientations, and that faculty and staff believe that no matter where someone is from or what they’ve been through, there is already value within the individual before they arrive.
