Episode 55 The Fighting Irish Give Reverence, Create Relationships, & Build Resilience

The Fighting Irish Give Reverence, Create Relationships, & Build Resilience 

Whether you are a Varsity or Junior Varsity Catholic, or even a non-Catholic, I believe you might have heard of the University of Notre Dame. Fall football Saturdays are incomplete without consciously or accidentally finding the Irish in their freshly painted GOLD helmets. 

Today’s guest, Sean Whitman, Senior Assistant Director of Admissions, is what I call a VARSITY Catholic. Born into a military family, Sean is a self proclaimed Army Brat. Neither parent attended College, but he attributes four important life lessons to his parents: Reverence, Relationships, Resourcefulness & Resilience. It was his parents who introduced Sean to college. How Sean discovered, researched, and attended college is a great story in and of itself. But for anyone with as much reverence to his faith as Sean, the Golden Dome with Touchdown Jesus, is the motherland!

Whether you are a JV or Varsity Catholic, or simply a fan of Brian Kelly and the Golden Helmets, this show is for you! 

Guest Bio:

Sean Whitten began in the college admissions profession in 2011 at his alma mater of St. Ambrose University –Go Bees! Sean currently serves as Senior Assistant Director of Admissions for the University of Notre Dame –Go Irish! 

Born biracial to military parents, living throughout the US, Sean identifies as a first generation college graduate who majored in History with minors in Classical Studies & Philosophy. His first thought was to work in a museum but came to his senses and found a curiosity in higher education. With a new found wonder, Sean earned a M.A.Ed. in Higher Education and attributes his development to the foundational, transformative, and inspirational power of a Catholic, liberal arts education. As such, he is enthusiastic about living out the Catholic Social Tradition by serving, empowering, and advocating for prospective students and families to and through the admission process and is honored to be a part of such a pivotal stage of student’s lives.
