Joy Lin Husted
Director of Admissions
I have been at Rogers State University since 2004 and have loved it from the very beginning. My first position here at RSU was Prospective Student Services Representative, and for three years I pioneered RSU’s recruitment efforts in central Oklahoma by building relationships with high schools in that region.
In 2007, I transitioned to the role of Retention Coordinator and worked to increase the number of students who attend through graduation. During that time, I also assisted with the admission and advisement of RSU students.
Most recently, in 2010, I became the Assistant Director of Admissions. My primary responsibility is now to give oversight to RSU’s recruitment team. In addition, I coordinate the co-enrollment of career technology students and actively recruit high school and transfer students to the university.
During my years at Rogers State University, I have remained active on campus, serving on committees for the Honors Program, the President’s Leadership Class, and Lunch and Learn. I also have served as co-coordinator for Commencement ceremonies and have been an adjunct instructor for The College Experience. I have the privilege of advising Epsilon Sigma Alpha, a student organization that focuses on service and leadership.
The most important aspect of my life is my faith, and because of this I am very involved in DestinyLife Church in Claremore. I love to sing on the praise and worship team and help lead retreats. Hillcat Basketball is one of my favorite winter pastimes, and on game days I can be found yelling on the front row across from the RSU bench. My hometown is Prague, OK, and I still go back to the Kolache Festival every year to polka dance in the street. Even though I do not get to travel very often, I enjoy it and have been to Europe twice.
My passion is helping students find the best educational match for their specific sets of talents and desires. I believe that college can be the best and most important time in a person’s life, and I want to make sure each student takes every opportunity to succeed academically, professionally, and socially.
