The Brooksville native joined The W in 2013 as an admissions counselor. Since 2014, he had served as senior admissions counselor in the Office of Admissions, where he was responsible for the recruitment and enrollment process for prospective students in East Mississippi, consisting of 12 counties.

Additionally, Hopkins traveled extensively throughout the region promoting The W at college fairs, coordinated prospective student receptions and send-off parties and assisted the director of admissions in training newly-hired admissions counselors.

On campus, he serves as a committee member for the MUW Black Alumni Committee and reporter for Staff Council. His extensive service to students includes serving as adviser to the following organizations: Men of Excellence, Young Black Leadership Association, MUW Modeling Squad, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Alpha Omicron Alpha Chapter, Inc., and the MUW Audacity Dance Team.

His professional service includes the Mississippi Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers, Chief of Staff for the Pi Tau Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., and the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
