Meet Devon

Devon Cruz
College Counselor


B.A. Hampshire College

Former Associate Dean of Admissions at Hampshire College, Amherst, MA

Application reader for Amherst College and the Questbridge College Match scholarship.

I have worked with students in the following areas:

I work well with all types of students, but my strengths are with students applying to test optional schools, transfer students, students who think “outside the box”, and students interested in small liberal arts colleges.

Why I am passionate about college counseling:

College was a transformative experience for me because I found a campus where I fit, both academically and socially. I’m eager to help students find their own college match so they can have the same positive experience during their four years as an undergraduate. As an essay specialist, I work with students to provide the perspective of a former admissions officer and make sure their submissions will stand out from the rest.

Campus Bound office(s): Mansfield and Hingham

Hobbies/interests: Reading, cooking (baking in particular), drinking lots of coffee so I can keep up with my toddler, watching the Bruins, and reading about twentieth century history.
