One of my favorite examples when describing the versatility of social media is to talk about a Swiss multi-tool. With a wide array of accoutrements, the multi-tool is a great way to frame the many uses of social media within student affairs work. Recently, in a post about “The Rise of the Student Affairs Digital Communicator,” I talked about the evolution of student affairs practitioners in terms of social media fluency and use.

Do you celebrate Pi Day? Pi is an essential mathematical symbol, representing the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Coincidentally, pie, a delicious dessert usually made with a pastry crust and fruit filling, shares the same pronunciation. So someone came up with the brilliant idea to combine them and celebrate both on one day: March 14th, or 3/14 (which matches the first digits of pi). It’s one of those rare holidays that can make math fun for anyone, whether you’re the kind of person who’s interested in a tart pastry or a juicy math problem. Not sure what I’m talking about? Just read (and watch!) on for more Pi Day fun.
