Allen began his career in our office as a Senior Admission Fellow while still a student at Davidson. After graduating with a B.A. in Theatre, Allen joined the staff full-time and has loved spreading the word about his alma mater to prospective students and their families.  

In his free time, Allen enjoys spending time with friends, trying out new recipes (especially anything by the Barefoot Contessa), and begging his roommate to let him get a dog.   

Favorite Spot on Campus

"Duke Family Performance Hall: the site of the Honor Code signing ceremony, guest speakers, and amazing artistic performances." 

Favorite Thing About Our Students

"Students are intellectually curious: not just about their specific academic interests but everything around them."
