Brian is a new professional at Michigan State University that blogs about higher education, student affairs, web 2.0, LGBT issues and general life inspirations and observations.  He’s thoughtful, has some great insights, and is also your “go to” if you want to see tweeted pictures of cute animals (and who doesn’t?).  Check him out and give him a follow.

Forget transferring a gavel, this is the 21st century.  Now we transfer Twitter accounts.  The @ACPAprez account transfers from President to President every year during the Annual Business Meeting of ACPA-College Student Educators International.  ACPA, one of the comprehensive professional associations in student affairs and higher education is an excellent account to follow, but don’t forget to follow the President’s account as well.
