ebru kardan & the great outdoors

Ebru KardanWe’ve made it to episode 70 with Ebru Kardan, Director of External Affairs and Communications at the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. We first address exactly what that means, as higher ed titles tend to include a lot of extra words in job titles. There’s some nerdiness in this podcast, in the form of Star Trek talk and Ebru’s famous beer can cat. We also talk about Untappd and call out many past guests for the beers they were drinking at the time, and Jackie explains a class she’ll be taking later this month.

It’s been a crazy week, so Jackie and Lougan decided to do a quick episode about what we’ve been up to. We’ve both received new job titles for the new academic year, and we’re both hard at work gearing up for the new semester. We also talk about our goals for the year, Jackie’s “reading” habits and Lougan’s favorite video game of all time Persona 4.

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!

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.

Unsurprisingly, we talk about cats (there’s 9 between everyone), but also chat with Melissa about the recent Sarpa fire that was very closeby. Now that it’s summer, life has slowed down a little, but Melissa is working on a website relaunch for the College of Engineering. We also geek out about Murder She Wrote and Star Trek for a while.
