La Salle Welcomes Nathan Housman '03 as Director of Admissions

July 7, 2023

Dear La Salle Community,

With Lauren Hopkins' previously announced departure from her role as La Salle’s Director of Admissions last month, we have been working diligently to fill this important position. After an extensive and thorough search, I am excited to announce that Mr. Nathan Housman ‘03 has been selected to lead La Salle’s admissions and student recruitment efforts. He officially began his role on July 1, 2023.

Prior to his selection as La Salle’s new Director of Admissions, Mr. Housman most recently served as a project and organizational management director at a Los Angeles-based construction firm, where he was responsible for the strategic-level management of different design, resource, and development projects.

Mr. Housman also previously served as the Assistant Director of Admissions at La Salle College Preparatory for five years. During his time in this role, he led the school’s overarching recruitment efforts and admissions operations. He also helped to develop a long-term, sustainable admissions funnel and application review process.

Mr. Housman also has over a decade of experience in the non-profit sector, including work with the Education Spectrum Center for Autism in Pasadena. He has also coached and refereed high school and youth rugby, and regularly volunteers with other local groups as a way of giving back to his community.

After graduating from La Salle College Preparatory in 2003, Mr. Housman went on to earn his Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Management. In his new role as Director of Admissions, he will oversee La Salle’s admissions operations, student recruitment efforts, campus visit opportunities, partner school engagement, and admissions ambassador programs. Please join me in congratulating Mr. Housman on his return to La Salle! We are all thrilled to welcome him back and are looking forward to working with him to continue the positive momentum we have built over the last several years!
