Princeton, New Jersey



Hello! My name is Carson Maconga, and I'm in the Princeton University class of 2022. As a Head Advising Fellow at Matriculate, I've recruited and trained 100 Princeton students to act as near-peer college admissions advisors for low-income, high-achieving students. These advisers were paired with over 200 high schoolers, whose colleges processes I oversaw. I also worked directly with five students on their college admissions processes.
