Darren Reaume

Senior Admissions Consultant

Darren attended Amherst College and worked Amherst’s Office of Admission for seven years (2002-2003, 2004-2010), serving as the Assistant Dean of Admission and as an Assistant to the Dean of Financial Aid for Outreach.  In addition to reviewing first year applications, Darren oversaw transfer admissions and helped launched several groundbreaking programs focused on increasing access and diversity. He created and supervised Amherst's lauded Telementoring Program, in which Amherst students mentor high-achieving, underrepresented high school students throughout the college application process. Darren also implemented a grant from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation to create a recruitment program for low-income, community college transfer students from underrepresented backgrounds. And he coordinated the recruitment of U.S. Armed Forces Veterans for Amherst's new Veterans Scholarship Fund.

During his time at Amherst, Darren also served as an Assistant Men’s Hockey Coach and Recruiting Coordinator. He led recruiting efforts for the four winningest classes in the program’s history, which also produced two recipients of the NCAA DIII National Player of the Year. Darren also worked as an Admissions Officer at Tufts University (2003-2004).

Darren graduated manga cum laude with a concentration in Philosophy in 2002 from Amherst College, and he also served as captain of the men's hockey team. Darren currently resides in Minnesota with his wife and two daughters.

"Road to College not only developed a comprehensive college admission plan that supported my daughter on her path to earning admission at Harvard, Stanford, and Princeton, but her coach did so in a way that aligned with her talents and interests. Road to College counselors are passionate educators who helped my daughter grow as a scholar, develop leadership skills, and minimize stress throughout the process. Road to College identified my daughter’s talents, personality strengths and talents and then helped her reach her the full potential. Colleges saw her authenticity from her achievements, her essays, letters of recommendation and interviews which is why I believe she was so successful across the board through the college admissions process. Meeting the team at Road to College was one of the best things for the education of my daughter."
