Hello Reader! If you, like us at The Beacon, are still a fan of traditional media, fear not: We are not going anywhere. Print is still our focus, something that we believe in and enjoy producing.
However, journalism has been on TV – and now on the internet – for a long time, and we believe that our newly revamped YouTube channel can help integrate and enrich what we do, and engage students in new and interesting ways.
We have quietly posted a couple videos in the last few weeks, and the plan is to keep adding to the channel on a consistent basis.
Our first video was an interview to SMCC alumni Vincent Amoroso, the designer of the Gallery Under The Stairs logo in the Hildreth Media entryway, and how his art was brought to life (in the form of a 3D printed sign) thanks to the synergy with the engineers at the Technology Center.
Then we posted a backpack journalism piece from one of the very prolific video classes offered in Communications and New Media. While we manage the page, every student is more than welcome to submit their videos. Our channel, just like our paper, is made by SMCC students, for SMCC students. So go ahead and subscribe at the link below and support The Beacon in this new endeavor.
