Barry Fitzgerald

Admissions Counselor


As a newcomer to the Eastern Shore, I’m excited to share with you all the reasons that I fell in love with Chestertown and am proud to call it home. WAC has an infectious and inclusive atmosphere that emulates the vision inspired by George Washington, who our institution is named after. The rich history of Washington College—it is the first college that was chartered after the founding of our nation in 1782—fuses well with the futuristic vision that our students maintain as a collective.

It is the most important decision in your life up to this point to decide where to pursue your higher education, and I am privileged to be able to aid you in that process. As a former college coach, I found a passion for helping prospective students find the right fit for their college experience.

Coming to campus for a visit is the best way to understand all that we have to offer you here at WAC, so I encourage you to do so. I’m sure you will find out why so many before you have found a home here in Chestertown. Please reach out to me with questions or concerns you may have, I will be happy to help you in any way I can as you work through the college selection process.
