This morning I was walking from class to the Honors College Office when I saw a crowd in front of Axinn Library. A film crew was filming an intro for mtvU’s “Dean’s List” with a varied demographic of Hofstra students (whoever they could find) in the shot. University Relations was involved, represented by Lindsey Calabrese. As I was snapping pictures on my phone, I got to hear Calabrese school Sam Rubenfeld, Senior Editor of the Hofstra Chronicle, about media ethics ( a girl was filming for a documentary and she wanted to be in the shot, Rubenfeld went on about a code of ethics involved).
Surprisingly enough, there were a lot of “McCain” chants.
Sadly enough, the crew did not capture Mike LaFemina dressed as Santa for PSU’s “Energy Theater”. Headed by Progressive Student’s Union (PSU), the group “works collectively on generating awareness of energy issues before the third and final debate arrives at the University.” (Thank you Chronicle). Today’s act was called “Clean Coal is as Real as Santa Claus”. (there was concern about the day care groups of young children wandering the campus).
