Inaugural Panda Mixed Tape 2015

So, amidst the cray cray of higher education, Student Affairs, SCOTUS decisions, volunteering for my fraternity, life happenings and blogging, life can get pretty intense. Sometimes you need to just take a walk or find a quiet place and listen to some good tunes.

So while we trudge through the summer, I created a playlist for you for those multiple moments in our Student Affairs’ lives. To help, I organized them A.T.B (According to Brian) and my moods when I listen to them, and yes,…it is a VERY eclectic collection 🙂

I am currently the Assistant Director of Student Life for Registered Student Organizations and Late-Night Programming at Michigan State University. After earning my B.A. from the University of Michigan-Flint, I entered the Student Affairs profession. After a few years in the field, I returned to school and earned my M.A. in Educational Leadership-Higher Education Student Affairs from Eastern Michigan University. In my spare time I blog about my thoughts and musings on current issues in higher education, student affairs, digital worlds, identity development and general life inspirations and observations. I also volunteer a lot for my fraternity and multiple regional and national professional associations.
