600+ Views on Tips for Mount Allison University Students

 Hi everybody,

I just wanted to make a quick comment on the "20 Tips in 20 Days for first-year students" video project I've been working on. In less than 50 hours there have been over 600 views of the three video tips posted so far and an incredibly positive reaction on both Facebook and Twitter. I'm glad to see you're all enjoying them. Again, I am not the only one who has worked on this project. All of the credit for videography goes to eCommunications Coordinator Nadine Leblanc. In addition, these videos are student voices so, again, thank you to everybody who volunteered their time to help tell the story of Mount Allison University.

Here are the videos so far:

Orientation at Mount Allison, featuring Beth Whitfield


Clubs and Societies, featuring Alex Dalton



Theatre at and around Mount Allison


Tomorrow morning's video is features students responding to the question "What's one thing you wish you knew before you came to Mount Allison?". One part serious and one part funny but both parts useful I think you'll enjoy it.

Friday's tip is... a secret. You'll have to check back here on Friday morning or go to http://youtube.com/mountallison (and subscribe) to see what Friday's tip is. This project is all about open communication so feel free to comment on my tip posts, the announcements via the Facebook Page, and on the videos themselves to let incoming students know your tip on the topic.

To share your ideas for future videos you can post comments on our YouTube channel.

There are 17 more to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as you're enjoyed the videos so far.
