This show was one of my entry points as I’ve started exploring a career in higher ed. I love the mix of hearing great things people do, but also the “human” side of it - it’s not all about the work!

Fun show!

The start of the academic year is upon us! We hope you're enjoying welcoming students both new and old to your campus. Because of all the craziness (and a random trip to Oregon), we're rebroadcasting our episode with Lisa Catto. It's a great episode, so check it out.

We hit the big 5-0 with Lisa Catto, Director of Social Media and Media Relations at Western Oregon University. Because she’s in Oregon and Lougan loves it, we talk about Portland…a lot. That includes public transit, ramen noodles, and the fact that it really is awesome despite what Portlandians say about it. With the new year starting, all of us are thinking about upcoming conferences, and we discuss why they’re awesome, how to be a newbie, and other great benefits. We close the show talking about social media groups, from faculty to students!
