Tusculum College receives over 3,200 applications for admission, sets record

Posted on 20 July 2011 by srichey@tusculum.edu

The Tusculum College Office of Residential Admission has a new record to celebrate. To date, the residential college has received 3,281 applications for admission for the 2011-2012 academic year. A record was set for the recent academic year as well, with 3,087 applications received at this time last year. The 2011-2012 application record is expected to increase, as Tusculum continues to accept applications for the upcoming academic year.

The steady increase in applications is an exciting challenge for the Office of Residential Admission, according to Melissa Ripley, director of admission for the college. She added, an increase in applications also means an increase in applicant credentials and evaluation.

“Applicant evaluations usually include mid-year and end-of-year reviews of credentials as Tusculum College strives to meet the needs of future Pioneers and their families,” said Ripley.

The Processing Department of the Office of Residential Admission, where applications are initially received, notes that even with the significant increase in applications, customer service is still the top priority.

Kevin Rose '09

Kevin Rose ’09 has joined the staff of Tusculum College as an enrollment representative to serve adult learners in the Tri-Cities area.

Rose works in Tusculum’s Tri-Cities Center, located at 104 Dillon Court in Gray. He will serve career-minded working adults who wish to continue their education through Tusculum’s Graduate and Professional Studies program, providing information to help them with their decision of which degree to pursue, guiding them through the admission process and helping them explore financial aid.

In working with prospective students, Rose can draw on his own experiences as a Tusculum student. He earned an associate of applied science degree in respiratory care from Walters State Community College in 2003 and later returned to school through the Graduate and Professional Studies program to achieve his dream of earning a bachelor’s degree. In 2009, he did just that, earning a bachelor of science degree in organizational management from Tusculum.

Prior to joining the Tusculum staff, Rose worked as a respiratory therapist and registered polysomnographer. He later worked in corporate healthcare sales and marketing, promoting products and services in the healthcare setting.

Rose, his wife Autumn and their two children, Brandel and Baylyn, live in Mt. Carmel. In 2009, Rose and his wife started the Brandel Rose Scholarship Fund at Tusculum in honor of their son who has Down’s Syndrome. The scholarship helps students who are majoring in special education or early childhood development.

“Our lives have been greatly impacted from those who help teach and serve the special needs community,” he said. “It has been our honor to give back to this great institution.”

Tusculum’s Graduate and Professional Studies provides working adults the opportunity to earn a college degree through a uniquely focused and practical program offered at convenient locations and on a flexible, accelerated schedule. Undergraduate degree programs include bachelor of science degrees in business administration and organizational management and bachelor of arts degrees in education and psychology with a concentration in behavioral health. Master’s degrees are offered in education, organizational management and teaching.

Dr. Thomas H. Stein

Thomas H. Stein has been  named vice president of enrollment management at Tusculum College and will be assuming his responsibilities in April.

Stein has held a similar position for the past 18 years at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. He steps into the position previously held by Jacquelyn D. Elliott, who will soon be leaving the college in order to complete her doctoral work.

Dr. Nancy B. Moody, president of the college, commended the success of Ms. Elliott during her five-year tenure at Tusculum in the growth of the residential student population and wished her continued success in pursuit of her terminal degree at George Washington University.

With thirty-two years experience in higher education, Stein has experience in marketing, fundraising, strategic planning and working with students through the enrollment and financial aid processes. He will take over responsibilities at Tusculum College on April 18.

“We are very pleased that Thomas Stein will be joining us at Tusculum College,” said Moody. “His experience and success in enrollment management will support continuing success as the college builds upon current strategies to grow our adult programs.”

He holds a bachelor of arts degree from Ohio Northern University, a master of science degree from the University of Dayton and a doctorate of philosophy from the University of Toledo.

At Otterbein University he was responsible for all enrollment oversight for traditional students and served as one of five members of the President’s Cabinet. Under his guidance, the Otterbein enrollment division increased full-time enrollment by 67 percent, from 1,500 students to more than 2,500 students during his tenure. In addition, he has worked with extensive marketing plans and with financial aid policies to enhance enrollment at the institution and meet institutional budgets.

Prior to joining Otterbein, Stein was Dean of Admissions at Wilmington College in Ohio, where he also served as a member of the President’s Council.

In Lewistown, Ohio, where he currently resides, Stein serves as president of the Indian Lake School Board. He is also a member of the Indian Lake Growth and Development Committee.

Stein is married to Kristine Stein and has two adult sons, Kyle and Carl.
