Arlette Rodriguez

Title: Admissions Support Associate; joined Union in 2018

What I do

I provide day-to-day administrative support to the department. On any given day, I greet prospective and admitted students and families, screen application materials, answer phone calls and emails, and coordinate travel for visiting students, among other operational tasks.

What I like about working at Union

Union is truly a special place, a tight-knit community where you get to meet and work with wonderful and caring individuals. I spend my day with people who love Union as much as I do, and I’m inspired by how, as a team, we go above and beyond for prospective students and families. When greeting and connecting with those who are coming in for information sessions and campus tours, I love seeing see how they fall in love with our beautiful campus and academic opportunities.

Outside interests

I am a maker of decorated soy wax candles, Pretty Flame Candles, and as a small business owner, I spend a lot of my time creating, selling and promoting my products. I am also a very active member of my local church, where I serve as the administrative assistant and director of the Connections Team. I also enjoy gardening and exploring new restaurants with my husband.
