    Volunteers Needed – Student (and Alumni) Video Project (distance and campus)

    On the GWSB home page, http://business.gwu.edu, you can see short videos of students in the School of Business.  You may notice that MSPM students are not represented.  Fortunately, we have been invited to remedy the situation.  We are looking for 5 – 10 students (campus and distance) to do short videos about what are you learning in the program, your thoughts about GW, etc.   These videos will be on the main GWSB website, the MSPM website, and may also be used during recruitment activities.

    For campus students, we can provide a flip camera and an interviewer.  Students who are not in the area will need to have access to a flip camera (or similar recording device) and interviewer, but we can help with questions and topics.

    If you are interested, please email Anne February 4.  Thank you in advance for being willing to share!
