Media Club Hosts First Meeting at New Location

Media Club President, Nickey Pena, hosts first Media Club meeting of the fall 2018 semester
September 21, 2018

The recently developed Media Arts program at College of Western Idaho (CWI) moved their base of operations from the Ada County Campus to the Canyon County Center (CCC). One benefit of the move is more space. Soon, they will have a full studio set up including a green screen wall, news desk, professional news cameras, and lighting equipment. The Media Arts students and Media Club hopes the new, larger, and more equipped space will provide more hands-on experience.

CWI’s Media Club held their first meeting of the semester at the new location on Thursday, Sept. 20. New and veteran members attended the meeting and discovered photography, videography, and writing as common themes of their interests. The club has many ideas for fundraisers including a movie night, professional headshots, and a Halloween photoshoot. These fundraisers will help members of the club fund trips to media conferences and/or film festivals.

Congratulations the new officers!           

Nickey Peña- President

Meetings are held Thursdays at 3 p.m. in room 154 at CCC.
