Ryan McLaughlin is the assistant director of Honors College recruitment. He joined Georgia State’s Honors College in 2019 as its admissions counselor. Ryan has worked in higher education since 2012 for the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), University of South Alabama and Auburn University. He has made diversity and inclusion a major focal point of his work and thoroughly enjoys working with students from any and every background. Ryan truly believes that every experience is one to be valued and shared, and he hopes to expand his world and horizons while working with the Honors College.
Ryan is a native of Snellville, Ga. (he was born in Tampa, but that’s a technicality we’ll excuse) and has lived in Memphis, Tenn.; Birmingham, Ala.; and most recently Huntsville, Ala. He is happily married to Jessica, and they are the proud parents of two beautiful children: Vickie and (Little) Ryan.
He enjoys podcasts, music and gym time—any combination of two works for him. Also food. Food is good, too.
