Hocking College has a new representative for students who want to transfer to Franklin University in Columbus.
Greg Haskins has been a community college regional manager for Franklin University since 2017 and recently added Hocking College to his portfolio.
Haskins attended Clark State Community College before transferring to Wright State University to complete his undergraduate studies. He then completed his master's degree in Higher Education Administration at Tiffin University in 2015.
At Tiffin, Haskins's coursework included student enrollment and retention, assessment and student learning.
Before graduating from college, Haskins was already working in higher education as a senior representative for ITT Technical Institute in Hilliard, Ohio, from 2010-14.
In 2014, Haskins began working for Franklin University as an undergraduate advisor. His job duties included establishing relationships with prospective students and making the admissions process more efficient and fielding more than 500 calls weekly.
As a community college regional representative, Haskins's duties include recruiting potential transfer students at partner schools, making students aware of their degree pathway options and helping them through the admissions process.
Haskins's short- and long-term goals are helping students save money and "to help increase the awareness of Franklin's partnerships so that every student can take advantage of the cost savings."
Haskins hopes that it could be possible for him to start scheduling regular visits to Hocking College after the first of the year.
Until then, prospective transfer students can meet with him through ZOOM at https://franklin.zoom.us/j/710484240.
Haskins's virtual office hours are from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesdays. You don't need an appointment necessary to meet with him.
