First place goes to Morgan Huber and her piece “Unless.” Athena Babcock took 2nd place with “The Creek” and Aaron Doyle won 3rd place for “Hungry.” A special thanks to all students who submitted their scary stories. These are very good and intense short stories; we encourage you to read the winning entries here.

Video Shoot – in the Sky.

A new Workforce Development Grant from Duke Energy is helping our eMedia students gain valuable experience with cutting-edge technology. The $11,015 grant provided funding for a DJI Mavic Pro Drone and Canon EOS Mark II Cinema camera that are being used in a variety of eMedia courses, allowing students to use technology that is being used more frequently in the world of media production. The drone was also used recently to take photos of students, faculty and staff forming the number 50, as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations. Learn more about the grant here.
