When I started college, I had big dreams to graduate and never look back. “Get in and get out” I used to say. Now, I find myself drawn to higher ed and unable to get away.
I have found meaning in documenting campus and showing the culture. Encouraging students to start the college experience and push forward, find a community and thrive has become an important piece of my career, life and life’s work.
People want to see themselves in an institution. If they can see themselves there, they will be much more likely to make the leap and join the institution. I try to remind myself of this every day when I walk around campus. I try to put myself in the shoes of high school seniors and ask myself “What would I want to see?” What ever that is, I try to show it.
