Ep. 62 | David Bohm

Guest: Ever wonder why a college or university needs "gifts" and what those gifts do? Ever wonder what an advancement team or a development officer does? David Bohm, the director of development for the Norman A. Wiggins School of Law, joins the podcast this week to talk about these very things. Enjoy!

Hosts: Kate Stoneburner and Billy Liggett

Guest: In late February 2019, guests from Residence Life and Housing introduced us to a new initiative at Campbell called the Residential Learning Communities plan — an idea that groups students together on the same residence hall floor based on common majors, career goals and other personal interests. Nearly a year later, Assistant Director of Residence Life Jenna Jeslis is on the podcast to tell us about the program’s success this past fall semester. Two students who currently live in RLCs, Cody Brown and Carah Watson, back up the benefits of living with students who share similar course loads and can push them academically.
