"I always tell my students that 'my job is to help you find the right place for you.' It is my goal to educate students about Quincy University and the college search process and let them see that they can belong here and be part of something amazing."
If Abby Wayman is your Quincy admissions counselor and you invite her to your dance competition or your soccer game or your high school graduation, chances are she'll be there cheering you on. She likes to share in her students' fun high school moments and get to know them and their families better.
And she also just likes to be active. She has three dogs; she runs; she enjoys boating, gardening, and barbequing; she spends time with her family back home in St. Louis, Missouri; and she tries her best to help her husband update their 127-year-old Quincy home. Abby likes to do things that make her happy—which is why she's been an admissions counselor at Quincy University since 2005.
"I graduated from Quincy University and quickly realized that Quincy, Illinois, is where I wanted to stay," she says. "Why work anywhere else other than the school I love? Working in the admissions office allows me to get to know so many people in the community and to share my love for my alma mater."
