Chuck Erickson, M. Ed.

Independent Educational Consultant



What do I enjoy most about being a college consultant?
Helping each student gain confidence and become more independent through the college search and application process.

Chuck brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to College Connectors, and truly understands the college fit. He uses his breadth of experience working with thousands of unique and diverse students to think holistically about his clients’ educational goals. He is committed to helping students and families while making the college search process fun and exciting.

A native Yooper (that’s the Upper Peninsula to the non-natives), Chuck resides in Appleton, Wisconsin.
