Lindenwood University-Belleville has hired Reeta Piirala-Skoglund to be its new dean of admissions.
The new position was created by the university to handle its growing student body, which has reached nearly 2,000 day and evening students in undergraduate and graduate programs.
Since the creation of the day program in 2009, the number of traditional day students enrolled at Lindenwood University-Belleville has increased ten-fold in just four years from 100 to more than 1,000.
"We are delighted to welcome Ms. Piirala-Skoglund to campus as our dean of admissions," said Jerry Bladdick, president of Lindenwood University-Belleville. "Her vast recruiting experience will prove invaluable to our university as we enter the 2014 academic year and in the years to come."
