Nikayla Loy, College Counselor

Nikayla Loy is an extraordinary presence with the innate ability to instantly connect with absolutely everyone she meets. Before joining Collegewise, Nikayla enjoyed five years as an admissions officer at Drexel University, where she seemingly did all of the jobs. Evaluate thousands of applications – done. Travel throughout the year to promote her university – check. Supervise the student ambassadors – yup. Align the internal and external recruitment efforts of Drexel’s School of Biomedical Engineering (just try to say that five times fast!) and serve as the NCAA DI athletics-admissions liaison—check. She also earned her master’s degree in higher education leadership and management. We have no idea how this next item could be true, but Nikayla swears that she was still able to get eight hours of sleep every night.

While Nikayla is technically a Pennsylvania native, her love for the Jersey Shore (not the TV show, the actual shore) and the fact that she owns a boat make her quintessentially New Jersey. When she’s not working, Nikayla can be found aboard said boat, bargain shopping at garage sales near her home in Midland Park, or doing any of the many other things that make her so very much Nikayla.
