COVID-19 Plan. Fall 2021 Plan >>

Keri Ann Viens

Assistant Director of Graduate Admissions

Graduate programs I cover:
Accounting, Cybersecurity, Higher Education Administration, Learning, Design, & Technology


Best way to contact:
kviens@baypath.edu or 413.216.6403, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (ET)

What I like most about my role:
We are normally the first point of contact for someone applying to graduate school, and helping someone through a very pivotal time in their life is what I enjoy most.


My favorite thing about Bay Path University:
The strong sense of community throughout. Whether you're on campus or online, there's a sense of belonging and pride.


The most important part of an application:
We look at the application as a whole, but I find the essay portion to be critical. It gives us a chance to see the person behind the admissions requirements. We can see your GPA, what others are saying through your recommendations, but I find we learn most about the applicant through their personal statement.


Advice about applying to grad school:
To genuinely put yourself out there and try. Do not be discouraged about past performance and communicate your thoughts and concerns with your admissions counselor. We are here to help!


My favorite motto or quote:
"You give life to what you give energy to"


Degree(s):
BS in Psychology, Mount Ida College


About me:
I love spending time with friends and family, reading, traveling and getting out into nature
