Paul Burns, Admissions CounselorMeet Paul Burns 

Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions

Hello and thank you for visiting the Cal U website.

I would like to share with you that California University of Pennsylvania has been my employer since 1984. I joined the Cal U family as a Residence Hall Director and held that position until 1992. At that time, I joined the Admissions staff, where I am currently an Assistant Director of Admissions. In addition to these duties, in 2002, I was appointed coordinator of our off-campus sites in Bedford and Somerset.

While employed at Cal U, I met my wife in 1989 and we were married in May of 1992.  Tina was opposed to living in the residence halls, so the Roman god of fire (VULCAN- Cal U’s mascot) shone down upon me and opened up a door for a position in Admissions. That occurred in August of 1992.

 My wife and I are so very blessed to have three teenaged daughters. And if their father has anything to say about it, all three will be future Vulcans. J

Again, I would like to thank you for your interest in California University of Pennsylvania. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need additional information. I welcome all calls and e-mails.

My territory includes the counties of: Northern Allegheny, Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fulton, Franklin, Huntingdon, Mifflin, Somerset and Westmoreland in Pennsylvania, as well as Maryland, Virginia and the southeastern United States.
