Anna Frey will oversee the admissions process as well as the administration of scholarships and bursaries at BU. Born and raised in Saskatoon, Frey holds Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees. She spent 10 years working in higher education in Ontario and has called Brandon home since 2018. Prior to her new appointment, she worked in Admissions and Student Services at BU and most recently has been involved in the ongoing process of implementing a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) project to dramatically overhaul the University’s student records and administrative software.

“I am delighted to have Anna leading our Admissions and Awards team,” said Andrea McDaniel, University Registrar. “Anna has significant knowledge of admissions as well as student records and registration. Her work on the new ERP system demonstrates an excellent understanding of systems and processes that will serve us very well. Just as important, Anna is dedicated to making her office a place where people feel valued and appreciated.”

Frey says friendliness and quality of service are among her priorities for her new role.

“As a smaller university that thrives on the personalized education that we provide, it is very important that we bring that same approach to Admissions and Awards,” Frey said.

“We’re committed to solidifying our office as a place that provides warm, professional and efficient service to students, faculty and staff.”

Brandon University is currently accepting applications from domestic students for the January 2023 Winter Term and from international students for the September 2023 Fall Term. More information is available at
