The Office of Student Affairs is hosting a video competition inviting all current graduate and undergraduate students to submit a video addressing the theme of, “This Is My University.”
Sharanda Crews, a sophomore political science major of Jonesboro, said, “This is something I would love to do but I don’t know much about it, and I’m already very busy with class, work, and my involvement in several student organizations, but I will look into it.”
This is the first time the competition has been held and may not be the last depending on its. The Office of Student Affairs heard about other schools hosting similar competitions and wanted to try it out at ASU’s campus. The competition gives students a chance to describe what campus life and ASU mean to them.
To encourage participation and add to the level of competitiveness there will be cash prizes for the winners. First place receives $500, second place receives $300, and third place receives $100. The winning videos will be displayed on the TVs in the Carl R. Reng Student Union could be used for New Student Orientation or ASU commercials.
Brandon Hinton, a sophomore Accounting major of Wynne, said, “I feel as if ‘This is My University’ should be advertised more on campus; it sounds like a great program to get involved in, but I don’t know much about it.”
Valisya Coleman, a sophomore of Wynne, said, “I think the video competition is great for students because it shows what the students really enjoy about ASU and what makes our school the best of the best.”
The video competition is open for submissions until Nov. 1.
Beth Silverthorn, from Student Affairs said, “I’ve had a lot of people calling in asking questions and showing interest and hope that this will be a productive contest.”
The competition is a way for students to get involved in and show spirit while also allowing them to leave their mark at ASU.
