Hayley Clock

She/Her/Hers  |   Coordinator for New Student Orientation

Hayley is an Ypsilanti native, and two-time graduate of EMU. In high school, Hayley was enrolled in the Early College Alliance program at EMU. While completing the program she decided to stay at EMU for her official college experience. Due to her love of Disney and Pixar, she decided to study Simulation, Animation, and Gaming. In her first semester, Hayley thought she should put her knowledge of EMU (from the years as an ECA student) to good use and become a tour guide. After a mix up, she ended up applying to be an Orientation Group Leader (OGL). Following the experience, she decided to continue on with various Orientation roles. She has done almost every job offered in the office (including OGL, Connect Group Leader, Student Assistant, SWAT team member, Graduate Assistant, and now Orientation Coordinator). 

After graduating with her Bachelors degree, Hayley realized she missed the Orientation experiences. About six months later, she decided to apply for EMU’s Higher Education Student Affairs Masters degree program and make Orientation her career.

In her free time, Hayley enjoys coaching three youth soccer teams for Ann Arbor Crush, watching soccer games and movies, and crafting.
