Four-Year Baccalaureate University Expands Admissions Department With The Hiring Of Experienced Student Recruiter
RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Kevin Rist will serve as admissions counselor. In his role, Rist will be responsible for meeting and touring with prospective students, reviewing student applications, conducting interviews, and corresponding frequently with students and families throughout the admissions process. Additionally, he will provide outreach from the university to high school juniors and seniors and transfer students through periodic visits to National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC) college fairs, community colleges and high schools.
With more than four years of student recruitment experience, Rist previously served as the admissions event coordinator for Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, where he handled programming for on-campus recruitment initiatives, including open house events and minority recruitment. As regional director for International Student Volunteers, a nonprofit volunteer and adventure travel organization, Rist worked closely with high schools and colleges in the Charlotte, N.C., area for student recruitment under the President’s Volunteer Service Award. Rist earned a Bachelor of Science in biology at Shippensburg University and is a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity.
“It is critically important that as an institution we provide each potential student considering William Peace University as the next step for educational advancement with all the assistance he or she needs from the start,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Kevin is fulfilling a key role in this essential process, and his previous recruiting success bodes well for what he will achieve for us. He will be an asset in showing high school and transfer students why our university should be the right choice for meeting their goals for more knowledge.”
“It is a true honor to be able to help shape the aspirations and future educational goals of our youth,” said Rist. “I am excited to be joining William Peace University and look forward to contributing to its already successful efforts in increasing student enrollment by carrying its message of success and opportunity to every prospect I meet.”
