Maggie Schuyler has joined Georgia Highlands College (GHC) as its new director of admissions to work with future students and the community, as the GHC Admissions team launches new community events and a revamped campus tour program called Charger Tours.
Schuyler graduated from Georgia Southern University with a master’s in higher education administration and worked as the assistant director of admissions at Middle Georgia State University.
Originally from Moultrie, Georgia, she has over 10 years of higher education experience under her belt and looks forward to her new position at GHC.
“There is a sense of family here,” she said. “My goal is to increase awareness of the great educational opportunities that GHC has to offer its students.”
One way the Admissions team is looking to open up GHC’s locations throughout Northwest Georgia in Rome, Cartersville, Marietta, Dallas and Douglasville is to begin a new campus tour program called Charger Tours.
Senior Admissions Counselor Maggie Jackson says the new tour program is a “great way to get an intimate look at GHC.”
“We keep the maximum registration numbers low enough to allow for quality, one-on-one interactions,” she said. “We hope that each potential student leaves feeling how excited we would be to include them in our GHC family.”
Jackson explained students can easily register by filling out a form at visit.highlands.edu where they can list which location they would like to visit and receive parking and sign-in instructions.
Charger Tours begin with GHC’s “Taking Charge” video and a brief admissions presentation before participants are guided around campus by current GHC students.
Sign up for Charger Tours at visit.highlands.edu.
Schuyler, Jackson and the rest of the team are also working on a new community event to run alongside traditional Preview Days at GHC which will include a number of activities, games, food and raffles. The pilot event is slated for fall in October at the Rome location.
