Kelli Barnette

Senior Associate Director
BA-Communication Studies, Marietta College (2012)
Year Appointed


Hometown: The PKB! Also known as Parkersburg, West Virginia

Territories: California, New York and West Virginia

Favorite Place on Campus: I really love the Chlapaty Café — call me basic, but my life changed for the better when they started serving Starbucks coffee. Also, I am clearly biased, but the Admission House is another one of my favorites!

Hobbies: Doing just about anything outdoors, hanging out with my perfect dog, Bob, eating pizza (preferably at Pizza Place), and taking long naps.

Advice for Prospective Students: There are so many opportunities in college to turn an interest into an area of research or academic focus; don’t be afraid to try new things, and don’t be intimidated by the idea of beginning college undecided in your major!

Spirit Animal: Dolly Parton!…wait, people are animals, so that counts, right?
