For episode 77 we welcome Alex Williams, Senior Program Manager at Technolutions, better recognized as Slate. We chat about the New England states, with the snow on its way. Even though Alex doesn’t work on a campus, he jokes that he’s surrounded by higher education, living a stone’s throw from Yale in New Haven, CT. His passion for enrollment management stems from his involvement in admissions in undergrad, and even though he was working in an unrelated field, he worked to found #EMChat on Twitter – a dedicated chat to breaking down silos in higher education in regards to enrollment management. Alex gives us a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to maintain this weekly chat.

It’s been a busy end of the semester! We’re working on some new episodes that are coming soon, but in the mean time enjoy this great episode with Cassie Allen! We talked about all sorts of awesome stuff.
Episode 62 is filled with Geneseo and Albany pride, thanks to Cassie Allen, Assistant Director for Phoneathon and Young Alumni Giving at Siena College. Jackie and Cassie are both Geneseo alumnae living in Albany, so we chat a lot about both topics. Now that phoneathon is over, Cassie is back to a normal work schedule, and talks about what she’s been up to with her new-found free time. We talk about podcasts aside from our own, as well as Cassie’s rabbit, George. Jackie and Cassie also compare stories about times they’ve been mistaken for students on campus, something that makes Lougan feel old.

Episode 76 is with Michelle Tarby, director of interactive content strategy at LeMoyne College. Michelle was chatting with us from a snowy Syracuse NY, stuck inside on her first snow day that she can remember. We talk about school closings and how to deal with it, and Lougan shares some science with us. We also talk about the Higher Ed Social Media conference that Michelle presented at, all about giving days on campus.
