Nichols College

Learn. Lead. Succeed

Tahkeya Blake

Being a Nichols graduate, I have a unique view of the character and community of this school. And now as an Admission Counselor, I get to share my perspective and help students find their place at Nichols—which I know from my time as a Nichols student, is actually very easy to do. 

My perspective is unique in that I wasn’t a “traditional” student—I was a commuter student. Instead of living in the dorms, I drove every day to and from campus. All the same, I still cultivated a passion for presenting and media in my business communication program, thanks to my truly dedicated professors. And I never felt I was different from the resident students. Nichols has such a strong sense of community and family that everyone who’s part of our campus feels welcomed and connected.

That feeling is why I’m still here as an admission counselor. I love that every day, it’s my job to help you find your own Nichols family of students, alumni and professors, who are here to support you and your ideas for your future, whatever they may be.

So if you have any questions, just contact me. Here at Nichols, we’re always ready to talk about how Nichols can take you where you want to go—and make memories that will last a lifetime.
