Tucked away on the second floor of the Unruh-Sheldon Building on the UJ campus, students may encounter a slight change in a small room.
Completed in January, 2020, the podcast booth is a state-of-the-art space that will allow students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to record, produce, and publish podcasts for The Collegian. Jordan Bits, a broadcast engineer at i3G Media in Jamestown, has been working on developing the space to make it an impressive addition to campus.
“I’m extremely excited that we have this available for our students and staff at UJ,” said Warren Abrahamson, Advisor/Publisher for The Collegian. “This will be yet another avenue for the University to showcase its talents and a creative outlet for many on campus! We look forward to having as many students and staff use it as possible.”
The booth features two microphones, a sound booth, a computer, and other equipment.
The UJ Student Senate recently approved funds for the organization to purchase a new computer for the space to better enhance its capabilities.
Students, staff, or faculty interested in starting a podcast with The Collegian, should contact Warren Abrahamson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jacob Just at email@example.com.
The UJ community is invited to visit the space during office hours, which can be viewed here.
