Sirena CantrellCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- Sirena Cantrell, director of housing and residence life at The W, has been chosen to serve as faculty at the Association of College and University Housing Officers-International STARS College in Minneapolis. She was selected out of 55 applicants.

 

STARS College, for undergraduates interested in student affairs and housing, will be held at the University of Minnesota June 13-15. Blending large group presentations, interactive activities, role play, self-evaluation and intimate mentoring groups, STARS College gives students an overview of student affairs and housing.

“This is an opportunity for me as a professional to share about the student affairs and campus housing professions,” Cantrell said.

She will help co-develop and lead one or two classroom sessions, plan and finalize the curriculum with other faculty members and serve as a mentor for a cluster of four to six undergraduate students.

Cantrell added, “I am very excited to mentor and share with undergraduate students about professions within student affairs and campus housing.”

She has been employed at MUW since 2008 and is responsible for on-campus housing and supervises nine professional staff members. Cantrell is currently a doctoral candidate at Mississippi State University.
