Cassandra Hynson

Associate Director for Transfer Admission

Washington College is truly unique. It offers a vast amount of opportunities for students to thrive.

The campus and surrounding community are very picturesque. Due to this, the campus offers a beautiful atmosphere to explore while pursuing your undergraduate degree. The first time I stepped on campus, I was truly impressed by the lovely architectural design. The marble steps around campus and the Visitor’s Center were very captivating to me. I felt like I was surrounded in a rich, strong collegiate environment. The friendliness of the staff and students was immediately apparent as well. Their friendliness and willingness to help really stood out to me. I hope that prospective students and their families will feel this as well upon their arrival to campus.

With all of that said, I am really excited about helping new transfer students and their families navigate the college search process. I have an extensive background in the higher education field. My background includes experience assisting high school, adult, nursing, graduate and transfer students.

I am also excited about the surrounding Chestertown community. I really like the small town atmosphere. It is very close to home for me since I grew up in a small farming town in the lower part of Sussex County, Delaware.  Students and their families who have a love for water will really appreciate all that the community of Chestertown and the surrounding areas have to offer. The great thing is that some of those areas double as a classroom for some of our majors which makes it quite unique and very hands-on.

I pursued an undergraduate degree in Human Services which reflects my compassion and willingness to help others. I have a true heart for people! I desire to help transfer students shape their future by working closely with them to help nurture their gifts and be able to obtain a degree that reflects these gifts.

Please feel free to e-mail, call, or set up a campus visit and tour to learn more about Washington College.  I will be more than happy to assist you! I really enjoy working in education since it helps students explore their career paths and goals while learning about themselves in the process. I look forward to helping create and be included in many wonderful memories with students who decide to enroll.
