LSU’s Warren Quirett Selected to Teach at Two SACAC Workshops
BATON ROUGE – Warren Quirett, an enrollment advisor in LSU’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid, has been selected to serve as an honorary faculty member to teach professionals from around the country at two prestigious workshops. Both of the workshops taking place this summer – Dry Run and Camp College – are sponsored by the Southern Association for College Admission Counseling, SACAC.
“Anyone who meets Warren immediately sees his genuine commitment to helping students,” said David Kurpius, interim associate vice chancellor for Enrollment Management at LSU. “It comes as no surprise that he was selected to teach other professionals from across the country. He is an outstanding example of the quality of enrollment advisors at LSU.”
Dry Run is a three-day workshop for new college admission professionals and it provides an introduction to the essential elements of the admissions process. The program provides training in relevant basic skills and discussion of pertinent issues and situations encountered in the admissions profession. Participants will attend presentations, engage in case studies, work within small groups and participate in mock-situation settings.
Quirett will also serve as a faculty member at Camp College, a planning retreat for high school seniors designed to help with the college application and financial aid processes. Along with other dedicated college admission professionals and college counselors from across the country, he will mentor and guide high achieving, first-generation and low-income students from around United States.
“It is an honor to be the first LSU representative to be selected for these coveted programs,” Quirett said.
Quirett is a native of Baton Rouge and a 2008 graduate of LSU, where he majored in political science with a minor in leadership development.
