Jen Dress
Director of Student Life
Office: The Commons 336

Jen spends a great deal of time immersed in all the fun stuff that UMBC has to offer! She comes to us from her undergraduate experience at Heidelberg College and her graduate work at The University of Charleston. As a graduate student, Jen worked as an intern in the Student Life Office and was hooked. She started off her career at UMBC with The Commons and moved over to Student Life for a chance to work directly with the student programming board. Jen has a hand in a variety of the major events that happen on campus and is always willing to help make new ideas come to life. In her free time, she enjoys playing with friends and family, working in the yard, all things sports, and any activity that happens at the beach!
