Best college president holiday card of the season

Red River College decided to take a pass on the traditional holiday card this year and opt for a video version styled after an episode of The Office, starring RRC President Jeff Zabudsky as the college’s version of Michael Scott.

The RRC team did a nice job with the video. It isn’t perfect by any means, but it’s a refreshing change from the usual holiday fare colleges and universities churn out.

It’s especially nice to see a college CEO having fun. AS RRC’s Colin Fast explains on Karine Joly’s blog, Zabudsky was all for the idea. “He had a blast and didn’t hesitate to do anything we asked. He was really keen on developing a fun card concept and realized he might have to ham it up a bit for that to happen.”

The video is also available on YouTube, and more details about the production from Colin Fast on Karine Joly’s blog.
