Joy Eden

Admissions Counselor

Hi there!

I’m Joy Eden and I’m originally from Joplin, Missouri. I found Milligan after graduating with a Bachelors of Christian Ministry from Ozark Christian College. I was blown away to find a school like Milligan that harmonizes Christian values and numerous high-value degrees. I immediately wanted to be a part of this body of Christ.

My husband and I live in Pardee Hall as Residence Directors and are loving re-living the dorm life even considering the shenanigans that may be going on come 2am. We are crazy about people and crazy about the Lord, so we hope you come join us in that endeavor.

I would be thrilled to help you along in the admissions process. Call or e-mail me for questions regarding scholarships, residence life, local places to drink coffee, admissions forms, degree programs, local comic book/vinyl stores, you name it, I’m glad to help!

Christina Mushayamunda

Senior Admissions Counselor

Hi Friends!

I’m Christina, your admissions counselor! I am absolutely excited you are considering Milligan.

I graduated from Milligan in 2015 with a degree in English and Psychology. Milligan was always my first choice. As soon as I met with teachers and staff at Milligan, I knew this was going to be a wonderful place to call home. I spent my time at Milligan working with our campus International Justice Mission chapter, enjoying all the Res Life events, eating lots of Cookout quesadillas, and hiking throughout the mountains of East Tennessee.

At Milligan your classmates, friends, and even professors turn into a big family. The love and support here is palpable. Milligan offers you the opportunity to expand your worldview, think critically, and grow in your faith.

Choosing the right college is a big decision. You don’t want to take this lightly, and neither do I. I will walk alongside you every step – whether it be choosing the right major, working on financial aid, or just wondering, “What am I getting into?”

Please call me/email me if you have any questions, concerns, need prayer, or encouragement.

Talk to you soon!

Oscar Sarmiento

Admissions Counselor

Hi, Everybody!

My name is Oscar Sarmiento and I will be your Admissions Counselor! I am excited to hear that you are interested in Milligan and will be here to help you as you consider the next steps of your college journey.

I graduated from Milligan in 2015 with a degree in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Youth Ministry and a minor in Sociology. I am originally from Colombia but spent most of my teenage years between Birmingham, Alabama, and Atlanta, Georgia.

I am blessed to have attended Milligan; it changed my life. While at Milligan, I was a Resident Assistant, a part of the Betty Goah Diversity Scholars Program, and a member of Milligan’s Camp Teams. One of the most fascinating things about Milligan is its vibrant community; it is what makes Milligan a truly special place that I have come to love—and I hope you will come to love Milligan as well.

Finding the right college is a difficult choice, but there is no need to worry since you have me and the rest of our staff working with you and for you. It was not too long ago I was in your shoes; so I know what you are going through and will assist you as much as I can. If you have any questions or need anything, feel free to contact me.

I am excited to get to know you and see how you can begin to leave your legacy here at Milligan College!
