Big kudos to Kristen Baumann, Associate Director Graduate Management Admissions at CSOM, and her team who masterfully moderated a successful Google+ hangout yesterday. This was the first time Boston College hosted a Google+ hangout on the official University channel (if you are unfamiliar with what hangouts are, click here to learn more.)
The attendees were accepted MBA students from around the world who had planned to visit campus on April 19. Given the state of emergency and citywide lock down, the admission event never took place. Realizing the potential of Google+ hangouts, Kristen organized a panel of current students to answer the questions. The hangout lasted for one hour. The discussion was robust and the students fielded questions on internships, coursework, the TechTrek program, housing and student visas.
Huge thanks to CSOM, Kristen and her student ambassadors for representing BC in such an incredible way and proving the feasibility of Google+ hangouts.
