    Ronny Bradtke
    Admissions Representative: Wisconsin and and Eastern Twin Cities

    Hi! My name is Ronny Bradtke. In my role as Admissions Representative at Minnesota State University Moorhead, I work with prospective students from the eastern Twin Cities and from Wisconsin. I am originally from Texas, but have lived in St. Paul for several years. I joined MSUM in the admissions department because of how much I like the school and its beautiful campus, as well as the community it offers. I hope to be a resource for you as you consider your next steps.

    Audrey Cloe
    Transfer Admissions Representative

    Hi! My name is Audrey and I am currently a graduate student at MSUM in the Counseling and Student Affairs master’s program. I work with students and their families throughout the admissions process and support them in making a decision regarding college attendance or transitioning from a community college to MSUM. I appreciate the opportunity I have in making connections with future Dragons. I see Dragon Pride on campus through the diligence and commitment our students have to their education and one another. I think the community that develops on campus is astounding and I am so proud that I am able to represent that to our future students.

    Rich Eddleston
    Admissions Representative: Greater & Central Minnesota

    Hi! My name is Rich and I'm a graduate of MSUM. I help future students who are interested in MSUM from their first question about the college until their first day of class, helping them with things such as applying, signing up for New Student Orientation, or just answering general questions. I work with students in greater Minnesota and central Minnesota, including St. Cloud, Brainerd, and Duluth. I have Dragon Pride from seeing how our students take control of their educational opportunities and make our campus their own.

    Holly Hoeschen - MSUM Admissions Representative
    Holly Hoeschen
    Admissions Representative: Fargo Moorhead Area & out of upper Midwest Region

    Hello! My name is Holly and I am originally from Freeport, MN but now I love living in the Fargo-Moorhead area. I enjoyed my student experience at MSUM so much that when I graduated in 2014 with a B.A. in Sociology I wasn’t ready to leave. Since then, I have been working as an admissions representative assisting students through the application and college decision process. I currently work with incoming freshman students from Cass (ND) and Clay (MN) counties, and those from outside of the upper Midwest region. I also work with all PSEO students taking classes at MSUM. My Dragon Pride is inspired by our passionate faculty and staff, the transformational student leadership opportunities, and our famous chicken tortilla soup (yes, it’s the best ever!)

    Scott Westby - Admissions Representative
    Scott Westby
    Admissions Representative: Northwest Minnesota and North Dakota

    Hello! My name is Scott and I grew up in a small North Dakota town, Sheyenne, ND. My affinity for this state makes me excited to work with students from North Dakota (everything except for Cass County) and the northwest corner of Minnesota, including Thief River Falls, Crookston, and Bemidji. I’m proud to be a part of the MSUM Student Affairs team to help high school seniors with that transition to college. My Dragon Pride comes from seeing those students transform from interested applicants to being involved students that are making a real difference on campus.
