Nathan Tallman was heavily involved in leadership while studying history at Central Michigan University (CMU) in Mount, Pleasant, Michigan.  Now, as a graduate student in the Education Leadership-Student Affairs Administration program is working toward his goals of becoming a future Provost, Dean of Students, or Vice President of Student Affairs. His role as the graduate assistant (GA) of the CMU Leadership Institute has given him an opportunity to work with students and give him the necessary learning experiences needed to work in higher education administration.  Read the rest of this entry »

I recently came across the blog of Jessica Torrez-Riley . Torrez-Riley’a blog is about a college journalist in Boston, Massachusetts.  I think she created a really cool site that allows readers to check out all of the different student publications of different colleges and universities in and around the Boston area. 

She posted make in May about the SGA of Northeastern University and some changes that occured.  I am always a fan of SGA’s around the country.  Check out her post “NU SGA changes, a band-aid on a broken bone.” 

Jessica also has a really cool post on SGA elections of many of the Boston area school in another post titled “Student Government.”

Featured universities and colleges include Boston College, Emerson College, Boston University, Northeastern University, Suffolk College, Harvard University, UMass-Boston, MIT, and Tufts University

Check out future blogs discussing SGA’s throughout the country!

Since graduating from Rowan last Friday I have decided that this blog must continue throughout my two years in graduate school. I think this will be a great opportunity to explore the topic of campus involvement to new level. I want to try and create a blog that can connect the Rowan community to the rest of the higher education community. I am planning on doing a number of interviews with different higher education professionals from around the country.

This is going to be a wonderful new focus to this blog.  Enjoy!

I believe that since creating this blog that awareness has been brought about the importance of campus involvement. Whether at Rowan or at other institutions.

Look at the six presidents that I interviewed about their personal journeys they took to get into the leadership roles they took on. I have never understood what it felt like to be president of collegiate organization. However I do know that within leadership you must be someone people could look up to but at the same time serving others.

I think the best thing that came out of these blog was the connections I made with people. I wanted to tell people’s stories and show students, Rowan and elsewhere. I thought this blog could not only help people but inspire others to get involved and create change on their campus.

I think I was able to connect people and show that college is a place to flourish and grow. You only have one life and you have live life to it’s fullest.

College is the best time of our lives!

The future of this blog will serve the same purpose but I would like to expand the interviews and look at what higher education administrator do. Learn about campus cultures different from Rowan’s. I hope to keep this blog for another year or so and just see how it can grow.
