Ryan Busch from Today's Campus Interviews Shannen Doherty, Education Connection's New Spokesperson at the 2012 APSCU Conference from Today's Campus Magazine on Vimeo.
Today's Campus had an opportunity for a little fun while we were at the 2012 APSCU conference in Las Vegas. Many people might recognize Shannen Doherty from "Beverly Hills 90210" and "Charmed" fame, but she's taken up the cause of the adult-learner as the spokesperson for Education Connection, a a college matching site run by Education Dynamics.
Shannen was onsite in Las Vegas and she was gracious enough to spend a few moments talking with me about her return to education and involvement with her online program at Ashford University. Fame aside, her story sounds so familiar when you've heard the challenges faced by other adult learners.
It was great talking with her--it is not everyday that a celebrity asks you for your tutoring support! And who knows, maybe there's a reality TV show starring Shannen and I--perhaps "Tutoring Shannen" will show-up on E or Bravo soon! We hope you have as much fun with this as we had filming it.
