Phone: 502-272-8127

Get to know me: I graduated from Bellarmine University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and will be completing my Masters in Communications in May of 2018. I was born and raised in Louisville, KY and went to Trinity High School. I reside in the Highlands and stay busy outside of work spending time with my wife and two little girls!

Favorite Spot on Campus: The Library! There are so many beautiful and relaxing places on campus but the library is by far my favorite. I was always able to accomplish a lot in the Library. The library was the one place where I could do homework, write a paper or hang out with friends. Overall, it was a very peaceful and quiet place for me to gather my thoughts.

Favorite Spot on campus: My favorite spot on Bellarmine’s campus is the Quad. It’s a great place to go get some fresh air after being inside all day! You’ll always see fellow classmates or professors on their way to class.

Logan Viens

Admission Counselor


Phone: 502-272-7913

Get to know me: Get to know me: I am a recent alumni of Bellarmine, graduating with a Bachelors of Art in Communication and Psychology in 2019. I grew up in Lexington, Ky, attended Lexington Catholic High School, and then moved to Louisville for college. I love the city of Louisville because there are so many things to do on the weekends with your friends and the restaurants here are top-notch. Watch out for the freshmen 15, though!

Favorite Spot on campus: My favorite spot on Bellarmine’s campus is the Student Activities Center! Throughout the day, you will see a diverse group of students hanging out, eating lunch, or conducting important meetings for Student Government or Bellarmine Activities Council and other RSOs. It is a great place to meet new friends and get connected with other leaders on campus, including the staff. Plus, it is right below Café WOW which has the BEST ranch.


Malcolm Jones

Admission Counselor


Phone: 502-272-8274

Get to know me: My name’s Malcolm Jones and I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Liberal Arts with a Minor in Gender Diversity. I grew up right down the street in Middletown, KY and attended Eastern High School. I love Louisville, KY and consider it my home whenever I am away. One thing to know about me is that I love the food and the bakeries here. They truly are the best of the best and I encourage you to explore the city and all it has to offer!

Favorite Spot on campus: My favorite spot on campus is probably the University Dining Hall. It’s a great place to hang with friends, family and coworkers and just eat and talk. The view from the hill is gorgeous and you’re able to take in the sights and sounds while enjoying the best food on campus.


Shelby Sullivan

Senior Admission Counselor


Phone: 502-272-7993

Get to know me: I graduated from Bellarmine University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with emphasis in Human Resources and a minor in Communication. I am currently pursuing my Master’s in Communication here at Bellarmine. I was born and raised right here in Louisville and attended Sacred Heart Academy.

Favorite spot on campus: I would have to say my favorite spot on campus is the Bellarmine Quad. The quad is the area between most of the academic buildings. It is always full of activity with students heading to and from classes or sitting outside to enjoy the weather. Walking through the quad, you are bound to see someone you know which demonstrates the closeness of the Bellarmine community. The quad is a peaceful, but busy area of campus, and it's always good for people watching!

Get to know me: I am a Bellarmine ’16 alumni with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I grew up in a rural section of Northern Kentucky and attended Walton-Verona High School. After graduating from Bellarmine, I decided to stay in Louisville because it’s so awesome! I also taught for two years before deciding to work at Bellarmine. I love all things food, cute animals, and Packers football!

Favorite spot on campus: While all of campus is great, I think my favorite spot has to be Palio. I’m always down for a late night snack and Palio makes the BEST buffalo chicken wraps. It’s also a cool spot to just hang out and snack with friends, especially in the winter when you don’t feel like walking from your dorm to UDH in the cold!

Favorite spot on campus: My favorite spot on campus is easily University Dining Hall (UDH)! You can catch me there everyday at lunch chowing down on a homemade M&M brownie. UDH brings “campus dining” to a whole new level! Aside from the food, it’s a great spot to run into friends, enjoy a nice view of our beautiful campus, and the dining staff is some of the nicest on campus!

I graduated from Bellarmine in 2012 with my bachelor’s degree double majoring in Business Administration and Communication. I plan on starting my Master’s in Business Administration in the next couple of years.

Favorite spot on campus: My favorite spot on campus is the SuRF. The SuRF is the place where I met many of my new friends for the first time. This was also a place I enjoyed as a student because there was plenty to do. Some of my favorite things to do at the SuRF included playing pick-up basketball, playing ping pong, and watching sporting events on the TV in the lobby.


Frequently Asked Questions

How will the courses be taught?

For the Summer Sessions 2021, courses will be operated:

In Person, Face-to-Face (F2F)

The defining characteristic of face-to-face courses is that they will meet during regular class schedules and the instructor and all enrolled students will be present in the classroom together for all meetings using physical distancing guidelines. This is the model we are most accustomed to but for fall 2020 there will be two main differences: 

  • Fully F2F courses may be held in larger spaces in order to achieve distancing guidelines. 
  • Cameras will be present in F2F classrooms so that meetings can be streamed or recorded to accommodate students who cannot be on campus for the F2F experience this fall. These students must inform their F2F instructors of their intentions prior to the beginning of the semester. 

HyFlex Courses (Hybrid-flexible)

HyFlex courses are a combination of face-to-face and online delivery and are necessary when existing spaces cannot accommodate current or projected section enrollment numbers. Class meetings will be carried out using some method of rotation where a portion of the enrolled students are present in the classroom while another portion of the enrolled students attend the class virtually. The number and frequency of the in-person meetings will be determined by the instructor – who will receive guidance on maximum occupancy for the room assigned. Students who cannot be on campus this fall will have the option to virtually attend all course meetings and will be expected to meet virtually according to the published class times/days unless other arrangements have been made between student and instructor.

  • The in-person meeting day rotations of Hyflex courses will be developed by the instructor once final room assignments and enrollment numbers have been established closer to the beginning of the semester. 
  • Just prior to the beginning of the semester, Hyflex course instructors will communicate the assigned rotation to the students in their class. 
  • Students who wish to take their fall courses completely virtually must inform their Hyflex instructors of their intentions prior to the beginning of the semester. 
  • Successful Hyflex rotations will require good, clear, and ongoing communication between the instructor and the students. 


Online courses are conducted 100 percent virtually throughout the entire semester.

  • Most online courses will be synchronous (required specified virtual meeting times) or have synchronous components such as scheduled discussion groups. Synchronous course times and days are reflected on the class schedule so that students know when to virtually attend. 
  • A small number of online courses will be asynchronous (specific meeting times are not required) in which case there are no times and days listed on the class schedule. Students in asynchronous courses will follow instructional expectations outlined by the instructor.

How will physical distancing occur in classrooms? 

Face coverings are required in university indoor facilities and classrooms as defined in the university’s face covering policy. Physical distancing will be maintained in classrooms with student separation of at least 6 feet in all directions maintained at all times. The instruction station will provide an additional 60 square feet of separation for the course instructor. Students will be spread throughout the classroom by reducing the number of seats/desks available for students. Classroom organization, setup and number of seats/desks shall not be changed or altered by students, instructors or other university staff.
