Behold my planner (left). My week included Obscenity Day in my Media Law class, photos for Student Spotlight on the new SMC website (to be launched in late January), a trip to Williston, an arraignment, a Founder's Society meeting, a KnightChat (attend our last one of the semester on December 6th at 7:30 pm), and filming for the new SMC Admissions Housing video.
|Yup, we look awesome!|
Due to the recent changes in the tour route--tour guides no longer show dorm rooms-- the Admissions office is creating a housing video that displays all the different housing available on campus. I was asked to be a host along with a freshman named Peyton (We will most certainly be receiving Oscar nominations). We did all of the filming on Friday, starting at 6:45 am outside the First-Year quad where the new Student Activities Center will be built. My only non-filming times were from 10 am to 12 pm when I was in class. I am happy to say that the skills I learned in Acting for the Camera last semester came in handy.
The housing videos will feature first-year dorms, suites, and townhouses so that prospective students and parents can get a feel for residential life through the entire college experience. I really enjoyed the opportunity to work on this video with Peyton and the SMC Admissions crew. Later that night, I joined the AcaBellas to sing the National Anthem at the Men's Basketball game in Ross Sports Center. The Acabellas are working on a lot of new music for our semester-end concert on December 9th. Did I tell you I got the solo for King of Anything by Sara Bareilles? I am so excited about it :D! We are also learning Don't Speak by No Doubt and will hopefully learn a plethora of Christmas Carols!
As for my weekend, it was relatively relaxing. I have been writing a paper for Media Law as well as a profile for the New Yorker (The class, not the actual magazine... yet.). I have had lots of sleep which is obviously important. Now I am back the the grind until Thanksgiving break starts on Tuesday afternoon! Woot Woot! Have questions about SMC? Ask me here. Talk to you all soon!
