Members of student government are taking to web videos and television to talk about campus issues.
Student government is working with Carolina Week, Student Television and the new Carolina Broadcast Team to deliver videos.
Bi-weekly interviews with Student Body President Hogan Medlin, to be shown on YouTube through the UNCExecBranch channel, will include hard news, said Beth Lawrence, director of the Carolina Broadcast Team.
The team, in conjunction with Carolina Week, posted the first of the Campus Update videos Nov. 9.
“We chose to partner with Carolina Week because they have long-standing experience in high-quality video production,” said Student Body Secretary Ian Lee.
Medlin said the second video, shot on Monday, will cover topics including the admissions ambassadors abroad program and Top of Lenoir renovations.
He said he hopes students are watching the videos.
“Every year people ask what student government is doing,” he said. “This is an outreach to let you know what is going on and how you can be more involved. We don’t want to just focus on the issues, but the good things that are happening too.”
Lee said he created the broadcast team at the beginning of the semester as part of Medlin’s campaign pledge to make student government more transparent.
