BSU at the Games is a group of 40 students from Ball State University who will be traveling to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Our class is comprised of students majoring in photography, graphic design, public relations, journalism, telecommunications and sport administration. Read our blog as we spend the next few months preparing for the trip. Be sure to check in daily beginning July 23 so we can give you an inside look into our college minds as we take on the city in search of great media content. As part of the public relations team, I’ve been organizing this blog, helping create media lists, producing website content and developing ideas for our social-media plan. You’ll see my tweets from time to time, and I’ll be sure to have my classmates blogging for you!
I can’t really describe how privileged I feel to be involved with such a prestigious immersive learning project. Last spring, I spent four months studying British culture while living in London. I’m excited to return to a former home and show my classmates around the city!
Double-decker buses, rides on the Underground, brilliant accents and the 2012 Olympic Games—here we come!
