We like to say that Bennington is one of the last true liberal arts colleges in its ideal form. Here, you'll find students from Brooklyn and LA tucking themselves away in the Green Mountains to study the intersection of Foucault, natural language processing, and dance. Erin wishes she'd gone to Bennington.
When the Communications Department was short-staffed and on-boarding a new communications dean, Erin stepped in to fill some gaps and provide strategic guidance over a six-month period. She weighed in on messaging, branding, competitor analysis, campaign positioning, and strategic planning for the new era in the department.
But sometimes, it's the day-to-day, nitty-gritty work that helps most. From writing Chronicle of Higher Education editorials with the college president to updating the website to creating the college's first-ever Facebook ads, Erin supported the tremendously talented, hard-working team with whatever needed doing — and made some lifelong friends in the process.
