This month’s show is hosted by Chris Roselli of the WWU Alumni Association and Anna Magidson, a student at Western.   Following is the story lineup for this episode:

  • Education Outdoors – Students from Western’s Huxley College of the Environment teach local sixth-graders about water quality, stream macro-invertebrates and environmental stewardship at this project at the Bellingham School District’s Gordon Carter Environmental Learning Center near Lake Whatcom.
  • Going from Good to Best – Western’s Best SELF program aims at providing students, faculty, and staff with the resources and feedback to allow them to grow and thrive with a state of positive wellbeing and self confidence, and to allow the students to leave Western after graduation better prepared mentally and emotionally for the next stage of their lives.
  • Embracing Technology – The Ninth Annual TechTonic Technology showcase – this year’s theme was “Shake, Make, and Innovate” – brings students, entrepreneurs and community members together to talk about issues surrounding technology and how to best use the latest tools to help innovate and start new ventures.
  • Chris Isenberg – Isenberg, a Western alumnus, is the Senior VP of Supply Chain and Global Procurement for Halyard Health, a subsidiary of Kimberly Clark. In this segment, he talks about how the supply chain works in getting products from manufacturers to delivery to their customers. He also discusses how his background in then liberal arts at Western grounded him and proved the foundation for his success in the business world.
  • Dogs in the Library – The WesternCares program helps students during finals to distress and relax, through events as well as pet therapy – in this case, therapy cats and dogs in the library that allow the students, just for a few minutes, to not worry about the tests or papers or presentations in their schedule.
