Our admissions counselors know USC Salkehatchie, and they'll get to know you, so you can explore all the opportunities here. Speaking with one of them is often the first step to getting your education.

Joey Hughes

My name is Joey Hughes and I am proud to be Director of Recruiting at the University of South Carolina Salkehatchie. I grew up in North Augusta, S.C. and have had the pleasure of traveling and living all over this great state.

I graduated from our Columbia campus in 2005 with a B.A. in psychology. I have personal experiences on different campuses such as technical schools, small colleges, regional universities and major universities. Each type of institution has its pros and cons and it is my goal to help you make the best choice for YOU.

Our motto at USC Salkehatchie is “Start Here. Go Anywhere.” I believe that having a firm foundation, not only in school, but in life, is essential to helping you develop into the amazing person you were created to be. No matter what walk of life you choose, USC Salkehatchie can be the gateway to achieving your greatest dream.

If you are interested in taking a tour of our campuses, please contact me so we can schedule a time for your visit. Please contact me with any questions at 803-584-3446 ext. 259 or send me an email at

I am more than happy to help you in any way you may need. Please feel free to contact me with questions, and if I cannot answer them, I will get you in touch with the right person, no matter which campus you are considering! I hope to hear from you soon.
