PA060016Last night, the winners of the Liberal Arts Freshmen Video Contest were announced. While watching the videos, I was really impressed  and thought the editing and effects were very original and professional. The videos showed a little bit about what it’s really like to be a Duquesne freshman here at McAnulty.

First place went to Omari who received a new video camera and second place went to Becca, who took home a $100 gift card to Nakama. After the videos were shown and the winners were announced, the winners took a picture with the Dean of Liberal Arts.

From left to right is Omari’s actor, Omari, Dr. Duncan, and Becca.

I think everyone was happy with the way the videos turned out, and the contest will be run again next semester. So, if you had didn’t have time to enter this past contest or heard about it too late, be sure to enter next time!

You can view the winning video below.

Again, great job everyone! I loved your videos and hope to see more next semester!!!
