What’s better than having someone that can put together a portal in Slate? Having someone that can put together a portal and take it to the next level. Chris Carl is more than just a portal expert. He knows the importance of making each portal a one-stop-shop for students to know their next steps, learn more about your institution, and connect with faculty and staff. From incorporating their admissions checklist to embedding your social media, Chris makes sure your students have plenty of resources to feel up to date and connected with your institution. Plus, he knows that appearance is key with students, so he works closely with our Creative Division to make sure every portal stands out and aligns perfectly with your institution’s brand identity. When it comes to creating a one-of-a-kind student portal, Chris Carl is your guy.

1. Jamming out to Dave Matthews Band and Bruce Springsteen.
2. Spending weekends with his wife, Megan, adorable baby son, Brayden, and his dogs Bella and Bailey.
3. Watching “The Office” for the 1,000th time.
4. Staying active by playing basketball.
5. Enjoying way too many hours playing video games.
