About Jill

Hello! My name is Jill Zagar and I am the Nursing Admissions Counselor for the AQ/UDM nursing program here at Aquinas College. I am originally from Mattawan, Michigan, a small town east of Kalamazoo and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education here at Aquinas. The friendships and experiences that I had as a student here at Aquinas were absolutely remarkable! After graduating from AQ in 2005, I taught in an elementary classroom for five years, got married to my husband Chad, and had my daughter Lucy (5) and Son Robert ( 1) before deciding on a career change. I decided to pursue a career as an Admissions Counselor with hopes of helping students receive the same amazing educational experience that I did.

I have been working at Aquinas College since 2011. My recruitment territory includes seven counties in Michigan and the AQ/UDM Nursing Program. I look forward to assisting you in any way that I can during such an exciting time in your life. Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at (616) 632-2861 or
