The AFCU 2010 Symposium and the USF Campus

We are planning for the biannual Symposium of the Association of Franciscan Colleges and Universities (AFCU.) The University of Saint Francis-Fort Wayne will host this event, with the help of other Midwest schools, in June of 2010. The following video clips are prototypes of videos we will consider using to let other schools know what our campus looks like and how it fits so well with our symposium theme.

We will not be using these clips. This is my work, “work” being used loosely here! They are to let someone who knows what they are doing know what we are looking for. We will need someone who uses a clean lens, someone who does not keep moving the camera all over the place, someone who can keep the conversation simple. In brief, someone who is not me.

The Rolland Art Center is a converted warehouse. It is part of our art complex. We hope to have a reception among the art.

The Doermer Family Health Building is the home of all our allied health programs.
Doermer and John Paul II Center

Sandwiched between Mirror Lake and Doermer stands the John Paul II Center. The John Paul II Center is the home to three of our schools, the library, student services and an internet cafe. It is also a place of art and beautiful vistas. This will be the site of most of our symposium activities. On the side of the building, embedded in the wall are Stations of the Cross. Outside the library is a favorite meeting place on campus, the clock tower.

Across the lake is the jewel of the campus, the Bass Mansion. It is right next to the Campus Ministry Building. We hope renovations are complete on the Mansion in time for the symposium.

Across the street from the Mansion is North Campus. That is where we will have our meals and plenary sessions.
Beyond Trinity Hall are the residential halls. This is where our participants will be staying.

Finally there is one more view of the lake. This is a quieter perspective.

Bad filming? Absolutely. Beautiful campus? For sure!
