About
"Flip the Coin over" is a phrase I use frequently to tell myself and others to try to always see both sides of a story--see the bigger picture.
Like coins have two sides, topics and stories have more than one side as well. We use pro/con, likes/dislikes, advantages/disadvantages as the foundation for many topics of conversation. In this podcast, that premise is used in the area of higher education, with the intent to help students transition into and out of college life. Topics include: finances, academics, personal growth/self-worth, social life, and more.

Who are YOU?
In the midst of rigorous academic life, finances, etc, how can a student create balance and protect their mental and emotional state? How can they tap into their personalities, hobbies, skills, etc to help them be successful in the classroom?

The Flavor of Graduate School
Degrees are like seasoning in recipes, and getting a Master's degree can add flavor to the careers of some, but not all. It's about blending and complementing the right seasoning/flavors together.

The 8am class (dis)advantage.
Many college students experience the dreadful early wake up to make it to an 8am class. Some former students warn others against starting that early, while others embrace the early-in/early-out mindset. What about you??
