Marcus Murrell '17

Admissions Counselor


Marcus works to help new students through the enrollment process so that their transition to life at CU is easy, yet memorable. As an alum, Marcus knows first-hand the high quality and affordable education Concord offers, but that wasn’t all that drew him to the university. Marcus says it started in high school with his very first visit: “Although I was still in high school, I felt my presence was welcomed all over campus. This sense of individual welcoming on campus remained with me for the next four years.” Now that Marcus is an Admissions Counselor, he can share his experience with other prospective students. Call today and let Marcus tell you how CU is here for you.

“From my first visit on campus, I felt like I mattered.”

Carli Dotson '16

Draper, VA

After graduating from Concord with a degree in Business Administration—emphasis in Administrative Systems and Management—Carli worked in admissions at New River Community College in Dublin, VA and then took a position as an administrative assistant in the Department of Art and Sciences. Currently, she works with first and second year students at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, VA. Concord played an important role in Carli’s life after graduation, providing her knowledge she took into the workforce.

“Concord helped me by giving me valuable life lessons, experiences, and knowledge to be successful,” Carli says. “Most importantly, I made connections and friendships that have been so valuable and rewarding for my life.”

Shawn Hatcher

Princeton, W.Va.

Shawn is a second generation Mountain Lion, but that is only one detail that finalized his decision to choose CU after graduating from Pikeview High School in 2017. The university also had the program of study he wanted, and its location meant Shawn could commute to save money. He is a Business Administration major with concentrations in management and finance. When Shawn isn’t in class, you’ll find him working in the business office as a work-study in the Accounts Payable office. Shawn says the real life experiences that professors share and the work experience he has received at Concord has prepared him for the kind of job he wants when he graduates, one similar to the job he currently does at CU. Education aside, Shawn says his favorite part about Concord is the people. “It felt like home from the time I stepped on the campus in 2017,” Shawn says. “Most of everyone is relaxed and will help out if you are in need.”
