Staff Spotlight

Lisa Przekop, Associate Director of Admissions, 30 years
As Associate Director of Admissions, my job is to plan programs and events for prospective students that will draw them to UCSB.  We don’t feel that we’re “recruiting”, instead we help students find the best fit campus by sharing the qualities about UCSB that will provide them with an amazing college experience.  What I love about Housing, is that I’m completely confident that the new students we’ve brought in will give them what was promised---a caring, nurturing environment where the everyone from residence hall staff to dining staff make sure the students begin their academic career in a safe, culturally sensitive, fun, welcoming space.  I was actually an RA in San Nic in the 1980’s and skills I learned in that position have continued to serve me well in Admissions!
