Dr. EttlingWhile I’ve never met Dr. John Ettling, SUNY Plattsburgh President, I’m pretty sure he has a good sense of humor.

Following in the path of several college presidents (Macalester College President is the most recent one that comes to mind), President Ettling stars in a 4-minute YouTube video serving as the official invitation to this year’s summer reunion at SUNY Plattsburgh.

It’s funny, informative and – based on the comic scenes shot on location – I bet President Ettling is a better actor than the script-reading scenes would like us to believe.

Posted on May 14, 2010, the video had been watched more than 2,000 times at the time of this writing.

Not a blockbuster by YouTube standards, but definitely honorable – especially since it’s popular among male and female viewers aged 45-55 according to YouTube Insights for this video.

Kudos to Devin Mason, Assistant Director of Marketing and New Media at SUNY Plattsburgh who co-wrote, shot, edited and sent me the link to this nice little video.
