Regions: Director of Undergraduate Admissions
Josh Cincotta was already two years into his college career when he decided that he wanted to combine a background in biblical studies with his computer degree. He found that Evangel University offered exactly what he was looking for and transferred in 2010, coming all the way from South Orange, New Jersey.
In 2012, Josh graduated with a double major in Computer Information Systems and Computer Science and a minor in Biblical Studies. He loved his Evangel experience so much that upon graduation, he joined the staff as an admissions counselor. Today Josh serves students as director of undergraduate admissions.
As a student, Josh was involved in Floor Council, serving as president of Scott First South, and could often be found on the intramural field, playing basketball, football, volleyball and soccer. “The relationships I formed with the guys from my floor are incredible,” he says. “They are more like brothers to me now rather than just friends.” Josh believes Evangel offers the perfect balance of spiritual and social life, with a specific emphasis on integrating the two.
But Evangel wouldn’t be Evangel without the faculty. “The professors rocked my world,” he says. “I couldn’t believe the interest they took in my life, not just as a student, but as a person. Their passion for teaching and caring was evident in everything they do.”
Regions: Associate Director for Undergraduate Admissions
Originally from Laredo, Texas, Ana Solano transferred to Evangel in January 2010 and graduated in May of 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She started work as an admissions counselor for Evangel just a week following graduation. Her best memory as a student was serving as a resident assistant for Burgess First South. “Spending time with the girls on my floor was by far my favorite experience,” she says. “I built lifelong friendship with awesome gals.”
Ana says the qualities that drew her to Evangel were the kindness and friendliness of the people she met on campus when she visited for a Transfer Student Day as well as the spirit of excellence that everyone had. “I absolutely fell in love with Evangel.”
She loves to guide the admissions team as they help new students through the admissions process. “Evangel was a phenomenal experience for me. It changed my life. My admissions counselor played a vital role in that. I am so excited to be able to walk with students through this huge life-changing experience and be a small part of such a defining time in life.”
