In memoriam: Suzanne Schmutz

Graduate admissions specialist Suzanne Schmutz died this past weekend.

Schmutz came to UNCG in 2010 as a temporary employee in Enrolled Student Services within the Graduate School. She became a permanent employee in 2012, working as in graduate admissions. Her colleagues described her as irreplaceable, hardworking, and an influential role model. She received a standing ovation during a new student orientation and often received thank you notes from applicants.

“I found Suzanne to have incredible attention to detail, and she was willing to work hard with our departments to bring the best students to UNCG,” recalls Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate School Kelly Burke.

“She said she would never retire because she loved what she did so much, and it showed,” remembers her close friend, Director of Graduate Admissions Kelly Meris.

Schmutz’ Celebration of Life will be at Forbis & Dick on Elm Street in Greensboro, NC, on Friday, March 15, from 6  to 8 pm.
