About College Scoops

Moira McCullough founded College Scoops in 2019 to provide parents of college-bound students with the resources needed to save time, money and stress when planning a college trip. With the help of a dedicated staff, dozens of college interns, and a veritable army of student and parent ambassadors, College Scoops creates curated, interactive guides highlighting favorite places to eat, stay, and play around campus, for both students and parents.

While the original aim of these guides was to facilitate campus visits for prospective students and their families, we’ve discovered that many current students, as well as independent educational consultants and other professionals, have joined our College Scoops community to gain access to the unique resources and insights we provide.

Executive Team

Moira McCullough

Moira McCullough

Founder & CEO

A parent of three college-bound students, Moira is well-versed in the college admissions process. Having worked in the technology and consulting fields at NYNEX and PwC in NYC and London, Moira used her experience to create a comprehensive platform to help prospective families plan a college visit saving them time, energy and stress. Looking beyond the academic fit, College Scoops helps students find the school that truly is the best fit for them with curated content from current students and parents sharing their favorite places on and around campus.

Moira earned her M.B.A. from Columbia Business School and a bachelor’s degree in American Studies from Fairfield University. A serial traveler and connoisseur of chocolate and coffee (in that order), Moira enjoys open water swimming, reading and spending time with her family exploring new sights and bites.

He designs and implements panels, lectures, receptions, and other programs that provide members with opportunities to connect to each other and the work of the Academy.

Patrick graduated from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2014 with a major in English and a minor in Museums and Society. He is an avid sailor and native of Cape Cod, MA.
