Andrea C. A. Leithner, associate director of admission and financial aid for Hamilton College, has been named director of financial aid at the University of Rochester's River Campus.

A graduate of Vanderbilt University, Leithner has served as a financial aid officer at the University of Oklahoma and at Vanderbilt University. She joined Hamilton in 1994 as associate director of financial aid, becoming associate director of admission and financial aid in June 1996.
