I am so excited to announce the addition of Fernando Cota to the Degree Completion Team here at ACU! Fernando is joining us as the new DCP Admissions Counselor and will be working with the adult students entering in the program.
As a graduate of ACU’s Class of 2009, Fernando is a familiar face to Arizona Christian University. His experience as a previous student gives him a unique understanding of the culture of the University and is valuable in getting new students excited about joining the ACU Community. Fernando has also worked as an Admissions Counselor with traditional students.
For the last eight months, however, Fernando has been on active duty with the Navy, training to become a Corpsman. His training involved learning a lot about Navy medicine, EMT training, Basic Training, Battlefield Medicine, and taking care of Marines in combat.
“I believe I can use my experience in admissions and the Military to better serve our students,” Fernando explains. “Much of my job prior was in helping students line up a plan towards getting into ACU and making sure that they had their applications and recommendation letters ready to go. My Military service, I believe, will help me better serve some of our Military students and Veterans by having that common connection with them. The Military lifestyle is a unique one and I am excited that I not only get an opportunity to share that with our Military students, but that I also get to be a part of helping them reach their educational goals.”
If you’re thinking about going back to school as a working adult, Fernando Cota would be glad to help you. He can work with you to discuss your individual academic plan and help connect you with other students working toward degrees in Behavioral Health, Business Administration, or Christian Ministry.
