International Students Admission Counselor

  • Meet Ronn Beck

    All international students and U.S. citizens from overseas work directly with our Director of International Admissions, Ronn Beck. Ronn joined the Dean team in the fall of 2011 and brought an extensive résumé of professional admissions activities, including conference presentations, published articles, awards and panel appearances. He enjoys working with students and finds Dean to be the right choice for many. “I’ve always been a fan of smaller, supportive colleges like Dean. It’s easy to join clubs and be involved, find help with your classes, make friends, and really know your teachers.”

    Ronn is a longtime member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and has served on two national committees. He also belongs to both the Overseas and New England Associations for College Admission Counseling, where he has been on the Executive and Governing Boards and various committees involving governance, finance and professional development.

    Internationally, Ronn has visited more than three-dozen countries on five continents. (Australia and New Zealand are on his wish list.) He’s directed overseas recruitment tours, worked as a college counselor in China, and been a guest speaker at high schools in Paris, Tokyo, Singapore and Mexico City. Among his favorite travel highlights are climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, swimming off the coast of Bali, riding elephants in Thailand, and passing through Check Point Charlie at the Berlin Wall.

    Ronn earned a bachelor’s degree with honors from Clark University and a master’s degree from the University of Connecticut. Together with his wife—they were engaged in France—he enjoys traveling and has been to 49 of the 50 United States. (Can you guess which one he’s missed?)
