Welcome to “Join the Conversation,” a podcast of the Student Housing Matters blog. Join the Conversation features interviews with higher education leaders about their institutions and careers in higher education, and their perspectives on the role on-campus student housing plays on a university campus.
In this interview we spoke with Mike Clardy, the director of communications and media relations at Auburn University, about the issue of the "Toomers Corner" tradition and how that impacts student life on campus.
Mike has served at Auburn University for the past 15 years. He has 23 years of experience in higher education advancement, news, social media, integrated marketing and public relations. He serves as Auburn’s primary spokesman and leads the university’s crisis and emergency communications efforts, in addition to web and social media.
