Elizabeth Farris

Admissions Counselor


I’m excited that you are looking into Eastern University for your college experience! I graduated from Eastern in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Communications Studies. Eastern is such a special place, where the students, professors, and beautiful campus make for the ideal college experience. Eastern gave me the tools needed to grow in my relationship with Christ, think critically about what I was learning, and do all I can to make the world a better place. 

When I wasn’t studying, I spent my time playing on the Ultimate Frisbee team or talking about my study abroad experience in Jerusalem (ask me about it!). My husband (also an Eastern grad and a Templeton Honors College alum) and I live in South Philly with our Great Pyrenees puppy, Henley. We usually spend our weekends outside--camping, skiing, or fishing-- or cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs. After working for a few years recruiting lawyers for a national law firm, I am thrilled to be back at Eastern, helping you with the college process. 

The years I spent at Eastern were transformative and influential. Eastern prepared me intellectually and spiritually to have a career and life that is built on the foundation of Faith, Reason, and Justice.  I look forward to assisting you as you determine if Eastern is the place for you, too!
