High School Students Can Learn Media Skills at Thiel College
The college’s second annual summer media camp is set for July. Those interested in attending must apply by June 24.
From July 11-15, Thiel College plans to hold its second annual summer media camp for students in grades 9-12. Students will work in the college’s James Pedas Communication Center with high-definition television equipment and editing software to learn how to develop their media creativity. The Pedas Center opened in 2014 and is home to the Department of Media, Communication and Public Relations as well as the Office of Admission.
One aspect is new this year: Students who attend camp will spend the full week as college students, staying in Thiel dormitories and eating in its on-campus bistro. Media and advertising faculty will assist them in learning how to use audiovisual recording techniques and equipment. During the course of the week, the students will storyboard, film and edit a short production, which they will premiere on the final day of camp.
Interested students must apply online, and those accepted will be notified by the college. The camp costs $499, although discounts are available; the application deadline is June 24.
