I talk about college admissions, college costs, college trends, and college data
I share my posts from my blogs, of which I have three:
Higher Ed Data Stories, where I try to demonstrate and illuminate patterns and trends in higher education data
Admitting things, where I write short essays about things in admissions, financial aid or higher education in general
Out Here in Oregon, where I talk about Oregon-specific things from my observations as Vice Provost at Oregon State
After business hours and on the weekends:
I share some of my photography. I do it for fun, not for profit, and I hope people enjoy it. I love feedback from other photographers
I talk about movies, sports, music, beer, politics. Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large. I contain multitudes
At all times:
This is a personal account, and my opinions are not necessarily those of my employer
I usually won't slice or dice my data differently upon request.
I like to laugh, and frequently use sarcasm and irony. Think before hitting reply.
I like disagreement and debate, but I'm under no obligation to listen to your bullshit or half-baked ideas about higher education, even if you have read three articles about it in Forbes or Business Insider or the Wall Street Journal
I don't engage with anonymous accounts. I consider an account anonymous if a) you have no picture b) your screen name is not the name of a person, and/or c) there is nothing in your bio that helps me understand who you are. I may not even read your reply. Don't take it personally, but I won't waste energy unless I know who I'm talking to.
