Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 9.54.34 PMThis week, Jackie had the chance to be a guest on Marketing Live, part of the Higher Ed Live network. She chatted live with Amy Jorgensen about Pinterest and what colleges can do with the platform. She’ll be presenting the same topic in Memphis at the Higher Ed Web conference, and Lougan and Jackie will be tag teaming on a poster there about this very podcast!

jessica philo & the seven-eleven slurpees

gocISlwpEpisode 68 is with Jessica Philo, who recently started working as a Student Services Specialist at the University of Pittsburgh. Jessica shares with us how she got into higher education (she was an advertising major in undergrad) and we chat about what life is like in a big city compared to a smaller town. Jessica explains why everyone should hug the folks on campus who schedule classes, as she gives us a behind the scenes look at the process. We also talk about Jessica’s blog, J Seeks Joy, and where she comes up with content inspiration.

We also geek out about Murder She Wrote and Star Trek for a while.

chris barrows & the sticker

203fb77Episode 54 welcomes back Chris Barrows, Social Media and Mobile Product Administrator at NYU. As a group of Social Media managers, we chat about what it takes to create an effective social media team, whether it’s made up of students, staff, or both. Chris is challenged with a large campus, but makes it work with things like Slack and Skype, shrinking the distance between users. Chris is serving as the chair for the upcoming eduWeb conference, and we chat about the importance of attending any conference, and what it takes to be chair. If he wasn’t busy enough, Chris also hosts his own podcast, Why I Social, which chats with everyone, “from average Joe to CEO.”
