Could be a great way for Alums to stay informed
Regular listener. The guests have been awesome so far. It would be great if the podcast could start off with a brief segment in which current campus ongoings and latest university news is discussed. I would also enjoy hearing from more Laurentians about their personal stories and memories from when they where on campus as I think these things help us to remember how we all share a common experience.
I learned a lot about how higher education institutions have navigated Covid. Fascinating to hear what Hagi said about his work this year. L4L!
