Jon Mires

Associate Director of Admissions

History with Hastings College:
I graduated from Hastings College in 1998 with a bachelor’s degree in Communication Systems with Advertising and Public Relations minor and a Marketing emphasis. Upon graduation, I worked in the Admissions office for three years before leaving to accept a Sports Information Director position. After a short time away, I realized the passion I had for Hastings College and returned to work regionally recruiting Colorado Students. This is my seventh year in Colorado.

Why I chose to attend HC as a student:
I wanted a smaller school, and I was intrigued by the communications department. Everyone was so friendly when I visited the campus.

Hobbies and Interests:
I enjoy being with my wife and two boys, outdoors, playing golf, and bike riding, and playing cards.

Favorite thing about HC:
The people.

Favorite place on campus:
There are several, but since I’m a Bronco sports fanatic, it would have to be either Lloyd Wilson Field or Lynn Farrell Arena.

Most memorable class:
Any class taught by Dr. Meyer. She is the best at presenting both the academic and real world side of the subject material.

Favorite thing to do in Hastings:
Hang out at Hastings College because I don’t get back to campus too often.

Favorite place to eat in Hastings:
Hunan’s or Big Dally’s Deli

Best thing about being a Bronco:
The relationships that I made while at Hastings and the friends I have because of my experience there. And the fact that I work for them. 🙂

Best meal I can cook:
Barbecue Ribs
