As a part of my position working for Boston University Orientation, I was asked to create a mini-web series that would detail certain logistics and information for students attending the 7th Session.
I titled the series “How To BU” as obviously a pun on the university, but because literally that’s what the series was about. Where do you go for Orientation? When? How do you move in? What do you need to live on campus? How do you move it all in? What’s living in Boston actually like?
The episodes needed to be funny enough to capture the students’ attention so they would understand the information on where to go and how to check in with the university, but also convey a sense of BU pride and excitement for the upcoming academic year. I took all of this into consideration when writing the scripts, handling the filming, and managing the post-production and other effects.
Starring a fellow Program Advisor, Teresa Langford, and guest starring Hannah Breck in Episodes #2 and #4 & Haejee Park in Episodes #5 and #6, “How To BU” is a fun insight into the serious joy Boston University has brought to myself and to everyone I know at the university.
The only question remaining is: how do you, you know, BU?
