Video Submissions for Fulbright College New Student Open House Website Due July 20
While the University of Arkansas will welcome students back to campus this fall, events will still look a little different due to COVID-19. Because of this, teams across campus are coming up with unique ways to welcome students back to campus, safely.
In the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, the Fulbright College Student Success team plans to welcome new students by taking their annual Open House event online.
A website for the virtual event, "We Welcome You: College of Arts and Sciences," will feature video introductions for each department or school within the college, giving students the opportunity to learn more about each and to connect with more resources.
And who better to tell that story than the amazing faculty, staff, students and alumni of each department or school?
Video submissions for the website are being collected now through Monday, July 20, and one video will be selected to represent each department or school.
Here are the guidelines for video submissions:
- Submit a 1 to 3-minute video showcasing your Fulbright College department or school.
- Start by introducing yourself and the department or school you are speaking about.
- Reference these video prompts for items to discuss:
- What is special about your department/school?
- What do you love most about your department/school?
- Why would you encourage someone to pursue a major in this department/school?
- Do you have any special advice for incoming students?
