Radford University

    Alexis Jenkins
    Regional Assistant Director

    Hello! My name is Alexis Jenkins and I am a Regional Assistant Director of Admissions for Radford University serving the Northern Virginia area. I was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Burke, Virginia. I graduated from George Mason University in 2017 with a degree in English with a concentration in American Literature and a minor in Japanese Studies. After I graduated, I taught English in Japan for one year. When I came home, I decided to start working in college admissions. I found that I really enjoy working with prospective students and helping them navigate the admissions process! I joined the Radford Admissions team in August 2022 and I am very excited to continue working with students in this new role.

    When I first set foot on Radford’s campus, I was blown away by how beautiful it is. I was further delighted to learn about the many cool spaces and resources around campus that provide our students with the experiences and tools they need to prepare for life after college. Everyone I have encountered on campus has been so kind and welcoming. 

    When I’m not working, I love reading, watching TV shows and movies (including anime and live-action shows/movies in Japanese), singing, and traveling. I am also trying to keep up with practicing Japanese so I can become even more fluent; I hope to pass one of the highest levels of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test one day! I am part of a big family, and I love spending time with my parents and siblings whenever I can, too.

    Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you have about Radford and/or the admissions process. I am happy to help however I can. Go Highlanders!
