Loyola at a Glance
Students produce web video about 'Life at Loyola'
November 24, 2010
Two Loyola University New Orleans students are out to capture and share ‘la vida Loyola’ in an exciting, new web video series which will launch on the university’s homepage Dec. 6. “Life at Loyola with Kelsey and Chelsea,” hosted by Loyola junior Kelsey Pabst and sophomore Chelsea Fielding, will give a fresh perspective on the Loyola experience as seen through their eyes.
“What makes our show stand out is that this is a student created and produced show,” Pabst said. “The goal is to give students the opportunity to show what makes their life here at Loyola so special. Maybe they want to highlight a service learning project that’s helping a local neighborhood or feature a visiting professor. It’s up to them.”
“We go to college in a very unique place and the ‘Loyola experience’ varies from person to person,” Fielding added. “We want current students and those who may be interested in coming here to have a good idea of what’s happening on campus – from athletics to campus life to our community involvement programs. We want to show the whole picture.”
The first installment of “Life at Loyola” will launch in December, but Pabst says they are already reaching out to students to star in their second segment, which will showcase the most creative, original rooms in Loyola’s residence halls.
“We are looking for the coolest crib on campus and want anyone who thinks they’ve got the best dorm room to get in touch with us immediately. We’re going to check out as many dorms as we can and select the best three to be on the show,” Pabst said. “Then, we are going to ask viewers to go online and pick Loyola’s coolest crib, with the top vote-getter winning dinner with me, Chelsea and Loyola’s top dorm dweller, Father Kevin Wildes.”
