Episode 60 starts off with a political spin, a passion of Dr. Ann Marie Klotz, Dean of Campus Life at NYIT in Manhattan. Having just visited New York City, Lougan shares his experiences in the Big Apple, and naturally we talk about ramen, but not the cheap kind that you boil in college. We transition to talking about higher education, of course, and how residence life seems to be the gateway job to a career in the field. Ann Marie shares her view on what a work/life balance really is, and we end the show with a glass of Lemonade.
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!

Episode 25 features Lacy Paschal, Director of Web Communications at Vanderbilt University, even though it takes some time to formally introduce her. In this episode, Jackie’s soul dies a little because she has nothing, at least when it comes to children (both which Lougan and Lacy have adorable ones). We talk about college sports, specifically in Nashville, and Jackie continues to learn about sports teams in the south. Lacy reveals that she is adjusting to a big switch in her department, growing from 3 to 14 members, due to a reorganization on campus. We also chat about personalized customer service, and what the best method for teaching software is.
