Stranger Things in Student Affairs
Trill or Not Trill?

There is nothing scarier than Halloween landing on a week day as a Higher Ed professional. Whether you are a Resident Assistant or working in Campus Life we have seen it all. Here is some fun inspired by my favorite Netflix show “Stranger Things” we can all relate to. Happy Halloween!
