Free pizza is just one small slice of the student affairs pie. Each week, host Meg Sunga interviews student affairs professionals about everything they're doing to improve students' lives, one campus at a time. We'll laugh, we'll cry, and yes, there will be food. Delivered to you by Presence.
Home for the Holidays
There's no place like home for the holidays...except when that home is an empty residence hall. Some of our students can't go home during the winter break season, whether due to travel costs or an unstable home life. But, not all of them can stay on campus either. In the final episode of season 1, we're speaking with Zduy Chu, a residence life professional at Valdosta State University.
Acts of Service (Learning)
We student affairs professionals know better than most that learning continues beyond the classroom. So join me today as we learn what service-learning is and what it isn't, unpack the intersections of social justice issues and service learning, and some student aha moments.
Supporting Student Veterans on Campus
Student veterans are non-traditional students with a different set of needs than their first time in college peers. On today’s episode, we explore what support really looks like for student veterans and their families with Joe Schumacher, Army veteran and Director of Veteran Services at Montana State University.
It's a haunting feeling. Submitting an application, immediately hearing a response, and then... an eerie silence. You got ghosted — professionally ghosted, that is. This week, we interviewed a paranormal investigator — we mean, career specialist Carrie Hawes, to try to learn how to banish the ghosts for good. Get ready for a spooky ride.
Food Insecurity on Campus
Estimates on the number of students who are food insecure on campus vary widely, with some studies reporting as low as 7% and others reporting nearly 50%. What are campuses around the country doing to ensure that their students’ basic needs are met?
Supporting Trans Students on Campus
When it comes to supporting trans students on campus, access to bathrooms is just the tip of the iceberg. How are you and your colleagues working to affirm and advocate for trans students on your campus? We spoke with Luca Mauer, co-creator of the Teaching Transgender Toolkit, to find out.
