Ryan Ziegler, B.A.

Senior First-Year Academic Advisor

Fine Arts


Ryan was born and raised in Ohio where he earned his B.A. in biomedical humanities and a minor in philosophy at Hiram College. Ryan moved to Las Vegas in July 2017 and later that year joined UNLV’s Center for Academic Enrichment and Outreach as a counselor for their Upward Bound Math and Science Center. During his two years at CAEO, Ryan has helped hundreds of local students pursue their dreams of higher education at UNLV and many other institutions. As the College of Fine Arts first-year advisor, Ryan is eager to meet each first-year student and help them make their first year as a Rebel a successful and meaningful experience. When he isn’t engaging with his students Ryan likes to indulge in his many personal interests, including most things geeky or nerdy such as reading, anime, film, musicals, Star Wars, board games, and coffee.
