B.S.: Pennsylvania State University


Hillen joined Franklin & Marshall in the April of 2019. As a first generation and Pell eligible college student himself, he is passionate about helping prospective students and their families navigate their respective college searches. Growing up in the diverse suburbs between Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC has played a major role in shaping Hillen’s philosophy on the value of immersing one’s self in a community like F&M’s.

Prior to joining F&M, Hillen started his career in higher education as an Assistant Men’s Basketball coach at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. He went on to spend six years at Albright College. He continued is coaching efforts for three years, and begin working in the Office of Admission in 2014.

When not traveling or reading applications, he enjoys spending time with his wife (Brittany) and daughter (Adalee). They are avid sports fans, and are excited by the welcome they received when joining the F&M community.

Favorite Travel Season Food – Crab cake sandwich. As a Maryland native, I try to enjoy good seafood whenever and wherever I can find it!

Next “Bucket List” Travel Destination – Italy. My wife, Brittany, and I have already started planning how we will eat our way through the various regions of Italy, enjoying the variety of cuisines along the way.

Favorite Place in Lancaster – Clipper Magazine Stadium. Home of our minor league baseball team, the Barnstormers. This is a great venue to take the family and enjoy a nice summer evening.
