Hilltop Podcasts

Periodically, Dr. Adrianne Pierce sits down with colleagues and visitors to talk about interesting campus classes and activities. We call these informal chats “Podcasts from the Hilltop."
Here are some of the occasions for past podcasts:
  • Showcase goings-on around campus
  • Complement print and digital media feature stories at Hackley
  • Present an in-depth look at new course offerings
  • Conversations with distinguished Hackley alumni and visitors
  • Reveal interesting aspects of Hackley jobs most people don’t know about
