Mr Chris Bell CEP


Your friendly expert for college admissions counseling. Work with Chris Bell on all aspects of college admissions planning from getting to know yourself to applying to college. 

Chris formed Bell College Consulting after seeing so many high school students in Colorado struggle with the college selection process. Students are stressed to a near-breaking point as they strive to even assemble the long list of tasks related to college admissions, let alone try to accomplish them. Students often feel the burden of making what seems like a life-defining choice, all while trying to put themselves in the best light for their college applications, where someone else will determine if they’ll get in. It feels overwhelming. It feels vulnerable.

Chris has a long history of helping students. He knows the college and university landscape and has a graduate degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education where he was trained as a counselor. He served in college and university settings for more than 25 years and has had positions at several colleges. His varied career includes high school and college teaching, college advising and counseling, software and courseware development, student activities, academic technology, and student support. He is full time in his dream job at Bell College Consulting where he helps high schoolers with college planning.

Chris loves working with students and their families. And students and their families report that they love working with him too.
