- ABOUT LAKELAND
Nick Spaeth, a veteran of the Wisconsin private college scene, has joined Lakeland College as director of admissions.
Spaeth will be responsible for all admissions and recruitment activities related to Lakeland's traditional-age undergraduate student population.
Spaeth comes to Lakeland from Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee where he has served as admissions counselor for a year before being named assistant director of admissions in the summer of 2006. At Stritch, he managed much of the college's transfer student recruiting and admissions processes, worked closely with the international student and athletics programs and mentored new counselors.
"We are excited to have Nick join the admissions team at Lakeland," said Nate Dehne, Lakeland's vice president for student development. "His personal roots and professional experience are in the state of Wisconsin. His knowledge of the profession, especially in this market, combined with his competitiveness and desire to be successful will undoubtedly be a winning combination."
He is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and the Wisconsin Association for College Admission Counseling. In 2007 he was named the first-ever recipient of the WACAC Rising Star award, given to the member with less than five years of college admissions experience who is striving to make a difference in the profession.
Spaeth graduated from Ripon College in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in German, and he earned a master of science in management from Cardinal Stritch in 2007.
