Hey Juneeee, don't let me down...

Welcome to summer (and terrible Beatles jokes apparently)!

There is a new podcast up! Jeff and Brittney are talking about Cirque du Soleil and what admissions offices can learn from the performance experience (hint: it's a lot). You know the drill: Soundcloud or Apple Podcasts.

We also still have our playlist up for you to enjoy in the quiet(er) summer months. Find it on Spotify here!


Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.

READING

This Gen X Mess

Generation X parents. They’re an enigma wrapped in flannel. The New York Times published a series of essays bringing you back to the 70s, 80s, and 90s to learn more about the Slacker generation and what makes them tick.


WATCHING

7 Days Out

Event planning experience is an essential skill in the campus visit world. Watching Netflix’s 7 Days Out will either drive you crazy or bring you comfort (depends on the episode, in our opinion). The series isn’t focused solely on the event planning, but you may pick up a tip or two as you watch professional event planners execute some of the world’s largest events.


EXPERIENCING

Recently, we visited our client Berry College (Rome, GA). We’ve been preaching the past few years about how static displays can have just as much of an impact (maybe more) than technology in the college student experience. Check out some of their displays around campus. All of them are low-tech, but clean, well-organized, easy to update and are staples in how Berry students get information.

Fenway Park has these posters all over their bathrooms. This is a major claim to put forward with an average attendance of over 35,000 people per game, but they certainly follow through.
