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.
Episode sixteen is a great mix of higher ed and being social with Amma Marfo, Assistant Director of Student Activities at Emmanuel College. We discuss the food pyramid, and determine that a combo meal from Burger King hits all the necessary food groups, including vanilla. With warm weather on the horizon, we talk about the fashion of the season; a mix of boots, dresses, and everything in between, leading up to the crunch of the final weeks of the semester before summer time. In the higher ed world, we talk about student organizations, including the Ukulele Club at Emmanuel, which Jackie will likely audition for. We close by chatting about a new series found on Hulu, Resident Advisors, and balancing accuracy for good comedy as it looks at college through the Residence Life lens, something that higher ed professionals rarely encounter.
