Max Hamberger

Assistant Director of Admissions – undergraduate marketing

Max is the Assistant Director of Admissions – Undergraduate Marketing and works closely with the marketing and recruitment teams on events, content delivery, and digital strategy. He also assists with student recruitment events on campus and on the road. Originally from Buffalo, New York, Max joined the Mines team in 2020 after a stint at Montana State University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in film and photography. Max’s favorite thing about Mines is the tight-knit community you can find on campus, and the incredible passion and our students have for the STEM fields. He also loves spending time in the mountains, and you can’t get much closer to them than in Golden!
