Ph.D. Candidate, Rutgers University
Director of Scholarships, Housing and Student Engagement
Merylou is the Director of Scholarships, Housing, and Student Engagement at DRC. She earned her bachelor's, Ed.M, and is currently earning her Ph.D. here at Rutgers. #ScarletPride Community service and volunteering has always been a priority for her. Coming from a humble upbringing, the generosity of caring individuals helped her in times of need. Now she's in a position to help others and give back.
As an EOF alumna, she has always been a heavy advocate of diversity and college access programs and working at Douglass allows her to continue that advocacy for DRC women. She wants to provide the support students need to maximize their time here and help them make their undergrad and intentional and memorable experience.
