    Carey Ellison

    Assistant Dean of Enrollment for Dual Credit

    Hometown: Bennington, Nebraska

    Education: M.S. Academic Advising (Kansas State University); B.S. Movement Science (Texas Christian University)

    Favorite Verse:  "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11

    Hobbies: I love the outdoors and the beautiful Colorado mountains. I enjoy snowskiing, hiking, and going on long runs outside. I grew up on a lake, so spending time with my family waterskiing and wakeboarding is one of my favorite things to do on a summer day. Baseball is another passion of mine. I love watching my brother play, going to College World Series games, and of course cheering for the Cubs!

    Before I came to CCU: I absolutely loved my college experience and after graduation, I felt led to work in higher education where I could help students find the right fit for them when choosing a college. I worked in Admissions at a small school in Nebraska while also working on my Master’s degree in Academic Advising, which I completed in August 2010. At this time, I knew God still wanted me in higher education, but at a different institution. His plan led me here and I am so excited to become a member of the CCU community.
