My name is Cynthia Delgadillo and I am a transfer admission counselor. I’m from Blue Island, a southwest suburb of Chicago. I fell in love with DePaul being a transfer student myself and began my career in the Office of Admission after graduation. I’ve been at DePaul University for over 15 years and am a proud Double Demon, having earned both my bachelor’s and master’s in education.

I chose to work in admission because I like helping students. Specifically, I like working with students that have transfer credit because I understand the excitement and frustrations that come in choosing an institution to complete their bachelor’s degree. I enjoy connecting with students and setting up a specific plan for them to ease the transfer process.

I enjoy finding new restaurants for brunch as well as watching movies and shows on Netflix. My kids and I love to go to the beach or pool in the summer months. I am fluent in Spanish as well and am here to help with the transfer process.

My name is Cyndee Newman and I am from the western suburbs of Chicago, specifically Downers Grove. I graduated from Benet Academy in Lisle Illinois, and continued my education at the University of Central Missouri. Here I received my bachelor’s degree in Communication specializing in public relations.

I have been in higher education for about 10 years, and with DePaul University since 2018. I love working in admissions, specifically with the transfer and adult student population because it gives me an opportunity to not only facilitate the process to help students achieve their goals of degree completion, but also provides an opportunity to share information with a unique population that often times balances life, work and school.

I am a bit of a foodie, and enjoy not only cooking but especially baking for fun. I make a pretty amazing pound cake, that with strawberries and whipped cream, is decadent! When I have free time traveling is what I enjoy doing the most.

I am a first generation Haitian American, and therefore speak Haitian Creole, and French fluently.

Originally from Wrigleyville, Chicago (born and raised Cubs fan). Fun fact: I worked at Wrigley Field for four years while a student at DePaul University. I am a Double Demon. What does that mean? I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Master of Education in Counseling at DePaul University.

I love working with Transfer Students and helping you finish what you started. I believe in the mission, vision, purpose and values of DePaul University. Seeing them reflected throughout the curriculum and throughout the University as a whole is meaningful. Having loved my college experience, I find there is no better way to share that than to be an admission counselor. I am honored to represent DePaul University to prospective students.

Originally from Milwaukee, Jim graduated from St. Norbert College in 2009 with a degree in Political Science. After graduating, Jim commissioned as an Artillery Officer in the U.S. Army through Army O.C.S., and served in Iraq in 2011. After his active-duty discharge in 2013, Jim began working in DePaul Admissions, and also served in the Illinois National Guard.

Transfer students are not always sure what to expect in the process. There can be uncertainty around the transferability of specific courses; it is also common for students to have some apprehension around acclimating to a new campus culture. I appreciate and respect the non-traditional path that some of our students follow to earn their degrees and I am happy and grateful to play a part in making their transition as smooth as possible. Transferring schools can be intimidating, but we are all here to help, and there are many supports in place at DePaul that will help ensure student success before, during, and after their time as a student here.

I enjoy going to DePaul Basketball games as a season-ticket holder, kayaking, photography, golf, and Baseball.

I enjoy traveling as often as I can, go to concerts, and enjoy local cultures and cuisines. I am fluent in Spanish.
