Organizational culture is something that is very important to consider when
you are looking for an employment opportunity. Organizational culture can
drastically effect how much you like your job and how long you will stay with
your job. I have worked in the Campus Visits department at the Office of
Admissions for a little over a year now and have a good understanding of the

admissions. There are a total of eight assistant directors of admissions, one
for each department. The departments include the following: New Student
