Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Here we are at Toss Plaza, So it's three academic buildings that come together into this one little courtyard area. Um, Tawes is a building that houses a lot of humanities classes, like English. There are a few different journalism classes that meet in tow full. So I do spend a good amount of my time and Tawes because that's where we have our computer lab. Of course, as with everywhere on campus, there's a lot of different tables and picnic benches and just like places to sit down. Enjoy the outdoors, although getting to be that time in November where it's really cold and windy out. So that's why you're maybe not seeing as many people outside as you normally would. This tawes it's a very typical looking academic building. Um, I mostly just come here for the computer lab and the TV studio, which I'll show you in a second. We have these two computer labs that AA lot of journalism classes Hughes. As you can see, there's not that many computers, but and that's brand new teacher sits. This is where I have my video reporting class that I'm in right now. Check out cameras from the journalism school, go out and shoot a story, our package, and then we come back to these computers and we edit the packages. Here's another lab that looks identical to the one that I just showed you. You probably can't even tell the difference, except for the colorful cards on the wall. You know, use the monitors on the wall to watch each other's videos and critique them. This is one of my my video reporting class is one of my favorite journalism classes that I've taken because it's really hands on. We got some really good critiques because my professor is an actual news anchor at WC nine. This is Journalism three sixty one, which is video report from What is it called? Really? This is video broadcast news, writing and reporting. So essentially what that means is over the course of the semester, all the students in this class have to do four separate news packages. So everyone's got to come to class with an effective pitch. They have to tell us what they're going to shoot. What the story's about who the central character is of their story and why anyone should care. Why that story is interesting and deserves to be told. Everyone has kind of experienced into how to pitch their story now. They pitched, and we're going to leave about an hour early today. I'm a great student, right? She's all right. So that is my journalism class I'm doing today.
