My virtual #sachat road trip!

#suedle drawn by the talented Sue Caulfield


One night last week it dawned on me: there are so many great student affairs professionals with whom I have formed a strong online connection to, but have yet to meet in person, or have only met briefly. With this in mind, I tweeted
While the reality of an actual road trip is slim, thanks to an idea from one of these friends who I’ve yet to “meet”, Sue Caulfield, I will be doing a virtual road trip in 2014. With the hashtag #SARoadTrip and Google Plus as my vehicle, I plan to “see” as many colleagues (and perhaps their spaces on campus) as I can.
Here’s how it works:
I will try each week to have a G+ Hangout with one or several student affairs professionals. These will be super informal and meant for us to just chat about our jobs, careers, interests, and wherever else the conversation may lead. I hope to use this blog as a sort of travel journal to highlight the people I meet, the places I see, and the things I learn.

Interested? Tweet me or email me at tstjohn33@gmail.com and we can set something up. I look forward to meeting you!

  1. Such a great idea! Especially in front of conference time where there’s potential to build off of those virtual meetings in person. Love it!
