Becky (Kuhlman) Hiatt is a proud Hoosier, born and raised on the south side of Indy. She graduated from Marian University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and a minor in political science.
Her love for Marian grew as a student which is primarily what brought her back as a full-time staff member. Some of her favorite college memories are when she worked as a student ambassador for the Office of Undergraduate Admission. This on-campus job involved providing campus tours to prospective students and serving as a student panelist for the larger scaled visits. As an ambassador, she related to prospective students and provided insight on transitioning from high school to college.
In her role as the events and communication coordinator, she manages the communication pieces and logistics for all events that pertain to undergraduate admission. Becky is responsible for coordinating events such as the Saint Mary Academic Scholarship Competitions, Accepted Student Days, and our Blue and Gold Days. She also assists with the management of day-to-day campus visits and the student ambassador program.
The most important piece of advice Becky would give to a high school student during their college search would be to trust your instincts. “When you are visiting various colleges, pay attention to the feelings you have while on the campus. Was the campus welcoming? Does the average class size provide you the individual attention you want? What activities are there for students to get involved in? These are all questions you need to ask yourself on each of your visits. Finding your fit when it comes to where you will spend the next four years is key. If you leave a visit feeling blown away by the campus, the students you talked to, or the faculty/staff you met, this is a good indication that you’ve found your new home!”
For life outside of work, Becky enjoys traveling the world with her husband, Jack, who is a 2016 alumnus from Marian University's Byrum School of Business. She is an avid-cruiser and tries to visit the Caribbean at least once a year.
"My focus is to enhance each prospective student's experience when they visit Marian.”
