Serving Students

(MVCC President Randall J. VanWagoner:)

For the past four years, I've been writing on my blog every week, trying to share reflections and insights from the incredible experiences that I've had the good fortune to experience here at the college.

You may have noticed recently I have been trying to use the power of video to bring those experiences to you in new and creative ways. And this week is no different.

I'm here at the fifth annual Student Barbecue sponsored by Student Congress right here at our Utica campus.


(John Coleman:)

My name is John Coleman, I'm the president of Student Congress, and this is the Welcome Back Barbecue, this is our opportunity to meet and greet new students, and be able to interact with them, and being able to interact with administration, and being able to show them that students mean a lot more than being numbers.


As an administrator, too much of my day is spent in meetings, so the opportunity to be able to get out and interact with students in an informal way, like the Student Barbecue presents, it's just the highlight of my day. So now, I'm off to the Rome Campus, for the Student Barbecue there, again, as part of the Welcome Week activities here.

Have a great week.
