Spotlight – Welcome Our New Staff!

Rebecca Xie, Admissions Specialist


I grew up in a small town called Central Point in southern Oregon, where I was raised with my 3 older siblings. I’ve always been passionate about sports, nature, and traveling. As a child I raced competitive BMX for over 10 years, 8 of which I held the title for Oregon State Champion.

Coming from a small town, it became increasingly more important to travel and see the world, which is why I chose to study International Relations and Chinese language and literature at the University of Oregon. Between my frequent trips to Eastern Asia, I have worked for the University of Oregon in the Office of Study Abroad as an Advisor, Clark College as a Credential Evaluator and finally, now as an Admissions Specialist in the Office of Admissions. I am so thrilled to be apart of this team and hope that I can make a positive and lasting impact around campus and in Schmitz Hall.
