Shawna Campanaro, Assistant Director of Admissions
'21 B.A. Communication, Minor in Politics and Government
Hey future Warrior! I completed my undergraduate degree here after transferring in from NCC, and am currently working towards my Masters in Communication. I’m excited to help in any way I can, and get you academic information that will help you achieve your goals.
Fun fact: I am an only child and a cat mom who loves giraffes, going to concerts, and traveling (fun fact: I've traveled the entire east coast)! Due to life circumstances, I know a lot about gluten free food and overall navigating dietary issues, so you can always ask me where to eat.
Julia Cipparulo, Assistant Director of Admissions
B.S. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Honors
Thank you for stopping by our page! I’m looking forward to assisting you on your college journey. A little about me: I studied Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Pennsylvania State University and graduated with honors in 2021. Before coming to ESU, I worked at Johnson & Johnson as an assistant associate scientist in the Bacterial and Infection Diseases Department.
Fun Facts: I also play vibraphone in the ESU jazz ensemble, and I have performed in many ensembles throughout my life, including jazz, wind, percussion, regional wind, and marching band. If you're interested in performing at ESU, please feel free to reach out. And like Shawna, I love giraffes!

Welcome to ESU, Warrior!
