Episode No. 38: Josh Wheeler, UCF First-Year Experience

Josh Wheeler works in the Office of First-Year Experience at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Over a given 12-month span, he works with a team to coordinate the arrival of 17,000+ students to the Orlando area for college — and in the last three to five years, the job has become more than just the first week of school (a traditional role one could play at most universities). Now there are classes, seminars, and more … essentially spanning a new student’s entire first year.

In this interview, we talked about all this — and how one manages it. It’s pretty interesting stuff, and relatively short (sub-20 minutes). Give it a whirl.

Although Wheeler doesn’t specifically deal with Move-In Day — that’s UCF Housing — we still touched on it in this podcast, so … I’m embedding this video to go along.

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
