(OSKALOOSA, Iowa) – William Penn is hosting its annual 24 Hours of Giving campaign on April 3, 2018. WPDay is a time to celebrate, connect with, and support William Penn! The university’s primary goals during the day of giving are to increase overall participation among our alumni and friends, as well as raise scholarship funds for current and future Statesmen.

A new tradition has developed as part of this annual event where our Digital Communication students have become an integral part of WPDay. Students enrolled in the Video Production 2 class develop and produce the videos that are released during the 24 hours of giving.

“This is our third year of partnering with Advancement to produce the 24 Hours of Giving videos, and I think it is a great learning experience for the students. For most of my students, this is their first time creating a video for a client, and I think the fact that the students are being asked to create something that will actually be used increases their motivation to do their best work,” said Matt Wagner, Director of the Digital Communication Program.

The videos they have produced over the last three years have been professional and unique. They promote WPDay while showcasing the amazing work being done by our Digital Communications program. “This type of real world application is immensely valuable at exposing them to the video production process,” said Wagner. “It [also] helps the students realize what they are capable of.”

This year, on April 3, be sure to join us for #WPDay! You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. To watch the videos created by our Digital Communications students, or make an online donation, visit our website at www.wmpenn.edu/WPDay. Together, we will show how the power of one leads to the impact of many.
