Buckeye Media Envoy
BuckeyeME engages students from different majors and backgrounds in news gathering and sharing the campus story through their personal perspective in picture, video, and text. Students are encouraged to post blogs, photos, and videos of in-class lectures, research, experiments, campus events, and much more. The idea behind the program is to expand the eyes and ears of the campus and create a central location to house stories and thoughts collected by students.
Eight students were chosen to participate in the BuckeyeME program. Central to BuckeyeME is a blog site through Ohio State’s u.osu.edu platform, http://u.osu.edu/buckeyeme. Buckeye Media Envoys are trained and encouraged to share their mobile photos, videos, and short text stories on the blog site weekly. A shared box was also set up to load photos and video.
Ohio State Marion students who want to be part of sharing their Ohio State experience in Marion through photos, video, or text are encouraged to share on social media platforms at #BuckeyeME or email firstname.lastname@example.org. New participants are welcomed to join BuckeyeME by contacting the Office of Communications & Marketing at 740-725-6316.
