Carly Chandler serves as Area Coordinator for First Year Experience. She joined Mars Hill University’s Office of Residence Life in October 2022, and in her short time here, she has worked hard to advocate for on-campus students and improve MHU’s residential experience.
She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2021 with a B.A. in public relations and political science. During her time at UNC-Chapel Hill, she fell in love with student development while working as an RA and gained 3 years of experience in residence life. During her senior year, she had the opportunity to co-supervise a team of 20 residence life student staff members, which made her realize that she wanted to continue this work at the professional level.
Carly is passionate about mentorship and helping students make the most out of their college experience. She enjoys utilizing her public relations background to improve departmental communications, plan engaging programs, and build strong connections on campus and beyond.
In her free time, Carly enjoys DIY projects, cooking, board games, video games, and obsessing over cute animals. She will always be a theatre and dance kid at heart and loves attending student performances.
