Patrick McElhaney

Director of Admissions

I am Patrick McElhaney, the Director of Admissions and your Admissions Counselor at Shorter University. Along with your family members, pastors, teachers, guidance counselors, and perhaps, your coach, I will assist you throughout the admissions process. It is my hope that you will seek and find God’s will and purpose for your life.

As a two time graduate of Shorter University and staff member since 1999, I understand and appreciate the importance of building lifelong relationships with our students, staff members, and professors. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in General Studies and a Masters of Arts in Leadership from Shorter. I am married to Dawn, and together we have four wonderful girls: Lauren, Anna Kate, Mallory, and Finley. The students I recruit are transfers, internationals and readmits.

Please feel free to contact me, if you have any questions or concerns about the admissions process, or would like to visit our beautiful 150 acre campus. I look forward to having you on The Hill!
