Howdy, folks! It is that time of year again: the start of the school year. Students are returning to classes (at least we hope) and Ohio University’s organizations are preparing for the influx of new members.
We here at OU’s chapter of the Radio Television Digital News Association (more commonly known as RTDNA) are no different. We’re firing up the metaphorical engine to crank out nothing but the best for this year’s group of students.
For those who don’t know, RTDNA is an organization dedicated to preparing YOU (the humble student) for the world of broadcast news. Through a series of hands-on workshops, information sessions, guest appearances, and corny jokes we will cover the whole nine yards. Here at RTDNA, our lovely and talented (emphasis on “lovely”) exec board is focused on giving you the necessary knowledge and skills to become a success in this field. RTDNA serves as a building block for the rest of your career here at Ohio University and beyond.
Anchoring, editing, shooting, social media, and so much more will be tackled just in this the first quarter of the school year. If you are just bursting onto the broadcast scene here at OU, you’ll be learning your basic skills here first. (That means before you learn them in class.) Everyone likes a head start.
But along with the valuable skill set, RTDNA is a place for friends. The organization is built for students to learn and teach alongside each other. Each person who signed up knows one thing for sure: RTDNA sounds interesting. (We have found the first commonality on our path to friendship.) This organization is x number of peas in a pod. Who doesn’t like peas?
Please, come to our first meeting this Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 7 p.m. in the Radio-Television Building (room 371). Let’s meet. Let’s greet. Let’s tweet (@OURTDNA). Hope to see you there!
