Celebrating 20 Years of Excellence: COCM and BGSU A Powerful Partnership with Sheri Stoll


“It was just this juxtaposition of people from very different places with their heads down working on stuff. And I thought, you know, this is going to work, and it’s going to work well. And everything that we couldn’t have hoped for, and more has happened. And I’m very appreciative.” – Sheri Stoll

Join us as we celebrate COCM’s 20th anniversary with the theme “Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Present, and Building the Future.” On this episode of Student Housing Matters, Alton Irwin, Director, and Chief Marketing Officer at COCM, sits down with Sheri Stoll of Bowling Green State University in Ohio, one of Capstone’s esteemed long-time clients. 

Sheridan (Sheri) Stoll is the Vice President for Finance and CFO at Bowling Green State University (BGSU). With a background in public higher education, she previously held positions at Kent State and Northeast Ohio Medical University. With over 16 years of experience at BGSU, Sheri has played a vital role in the university’s financial management and strategic decision-making processes.

During the conversation, Sheri reflects on her early career in public accounting, the unexpected path that led her to BGSU, and her behind-the-scenes insight into the vibrant campus culture at BGSU and its impact on the students there.
