Natalie Madruga

Natalie is a faculty member at the University of Central Florida (UCF). She attended UCF for both her bachelors’ and masters’ degree. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master of Arts in Rhetoric and Composition. Natalie has six years of teaching and tutoring experience, and has worked with a variety of students throughout each part of the college application process: selecting a school, putting together application materials, studying for tests such as the SAT and ACT, as well as writing cover letters, resumes, and personal statements. This type of collaborative work, to work with a prospective student to apply to their dream schools and pursue their future goals, is work that Natalie finds extremely important.

Natalie is interested in sharing all the information she can about the college application process, especially to a community of students that are underrepresented at the university level. She is also passionate about ensuring that 1st generation college students, especially veterans, have the tools they need for the college application process.
