Amanda Neuber attended Saint Joseph’s University and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. She loved Hawk Hill so much, she stuck around an extra year and earned her Master's degree in Experimental Social Psychology. Amanda realized her passion for academics and student affairs through her undergraduate experiences in Residence Life, Greek Life, Student Government, and Service Learning.
After graduation, still attached to her original aspirations, Amanda started her career as a Project Coordinator for a series of early-childhood development studies in the Clinical Psychology department here at Temple. While finishing the grant study, she realized her true calling was working with students directly - not sitting in a lab with data. Luckily, she found a home with the Honors Program, and has never been happier.
Amanda was awarded the Temple University Outstanding New Advisor Award in 2008 and won the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) award for Outstanding New Advisor in 2009. She has served as Chair of the NACADA Advising High-Achieveing Students Commission, and is currently an active steering committee member of the NACADA Advisor Training and Development group.
Amanda is a doctoral candidate in the Educational Psychology program here at Temple. In addition, she is an adjunct professor (currently teaching Honors Intro to Psychology), teaches an Honors Freshman Seminar and is very proud to lead the Honors Admissions and Transitions Team.
Born and raised in South Jersey, Amanda now lives in center city Philadelphia with her husband and young daughter. She is also a professional Photographer. She enjoys the arts, Philadelphia sports, spending time with family and friends, and will forever be a cheerleader at heart.
