10.1.12 "May The EMSA Be With You"

(Cue Star Wars Theme Song)... The "May the EMSA Be With You" episode XXV?  Okay, enough with the puns, and back to the seriousness of TTA (Turntable Advising).

This week was a big one!  DJ Jamo and Super Student Nico left Thrillhouse and Great Scott with the task of hosting the Associate Vice President of Academic and Career Services at Portland State University, Mr. Dan Fortmiller (screams and applause fill the room).  The 20 or so minute interview with Mr. Fortmiller included a range of topics; including the "Advising Initiative" and "Mapping Project", both special projects near and dear to the heart of the Associate V.P., the changes Mr. Fortmiller has witnessed on campus in his years at PSU, and of course, the most important fact learned from the show, that if our guest could do anything else in his life, career-wise, he would be some sort of back-up musician for Santana, and it is for those little factoids that we are proud to give our audience a gift like Turntable Advising.

In all seriousness, Mr. Fortmiller was a wonderful guest, and has been a significant part of the PSU campus form many years.  We appreciate you Dan and it was a pleasure having you on the show.

Tune in next week for our College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising themed show (phew, that was a mouthful!), where our guests will be Mr. Robert Mercer, Assistant Dean, and Ben Alberts, Academic Adviser for CLAS.

See ya'll next week!
