chris d’orso & the long story

This week, we welcome back the amazing Chris D’Orso. Since he was on the show back in 2015, Chris has move to SUNY College at Brockport where he is now the associate director of undergraduate admissions. The move for him was a positive change, as it’s allowed him to reconnect with his passion of working in undergraduate admission. You’ll also find out about something really big that’s been happening in Lougan’s life and why the podcast has been a little inconsistent lately. A HUGE thanks to Chris and Jon for being so supportive.
