    Sherry Hazelwood
    Senior Director of Transfer Admissions

    My name is Sherry Hazelwood and I serve as the Senior Director of Transfer Admissions. Although I am new to the Radford University team, I am orginally from Giles County and have lived the majority of my adult life in the New River Valley. I completed my associate's degree at New River Community College prior to my bachelor's degree in Communication Studies and master's degree in Higher Education at Virginia Tech.

    As a transfer student myself and someone who's path through higher education took a while due to starting a family, I know that each student’s path can vary tremendously. I enjoy my role in helping students take their next step in traversing the road in front of them. My hope is that every student I work with completes the goals they have set for themselves and if roadblocks occur, they know I am here to help.

    My favorite place on campus is the fountain. Not only is it very picturesque with trees and greenery around it and encircled by brick buildings, but it also reminds me of the students I work with daily. The fountain in the middle reminds me of the goals set by each student and the many sidewalks approaching the circle from the buildings remind me of the multiple different pathways student pave for themselves in achieving their degree(s). Finally, in the end, they all reach the same place, no matter the length with different twists and turns.

    When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and two granddaughters. I also love to spend time outdoors hiking, kayaking or taking advantage of the beautiful scenery.
