JWU Providence’s Social Media Coordinator Andrew Ludwig—also known as fiancé to Taylor and dad to the fluffiest dog ever Mazie (follow her on Instagram)—joined the Wildcat family in April 2019.
Andrew and his fiancé love spending weekends in Kennebunkport, Maine, as well as hiking, camping, and anything outdoors. “We do a sunrise hike up Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park once every year,” he says. “It is one of the first spots to receive sunlight in the United States.” Acadia National Park was the special setting where Andrew recently popped the question to his high school sweetheart just a few weeks ago.
Andrew is described as a team player, always ready and hands-on. “He is simply a really great guy who is raising the bar in our social media efforts,” says Joe Magennis, director of marketing. “He is making sure that our audience is aware of the incredible stories taking place around JWU and is establishing authentic connections with our vast community. It is a pleasure working with him every day.”
Andrew graduated from Bridgewater State University in 2016 where he majored in English. He currently resides in Medfield, MA, but is moving to Providence this month with Taylor and 5-year-old Mazie.
1. What new place would you most like to travel?
I’d love to travel to Italy and experience the culture, the history and the cuisine.
2. If you were a JWU student today, what academic program would you enroll in and why?
I really enjoy cooking, so if I were a JWU student today, I would study Culinary Arts – learn from world-class instructors and practice my skills in state-of-the-art spaces.
3. What is your guilty pleasure TV show or mobile app?
I could watch The Office over and over again – that show will never get old. And, for an app, it would be Amazon.
4. What accomplishment(s) are you most proud of—personally and/or professionally?
Professionally, I am proud to be able to help share the stories of amazing JWU students. Personally, I was able to pull off buying an engagement ring from the company that she works for, Hearts on Fire, without her finding out. It involved a companywide memo and numerous meetings in Boston with her coworkers.
5. What’s your favorite thing about JWU?
My favorite things about JWU is the family environment and school pride – everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I have felt like a member of the JWU family since my first day.
