Crown College recently launched a new resource for those interested in viewing the campus. The Room + Board mini-series shows what it feels like to go to Crown College through a narrative lens, while providing useful information for incoming freshman and parents. Each episode provides a virtual tour of different locations on and off campus, through unique stories and scenarios that many students face as they embark on their college journey.
The inspiration for the Crown College Room + Board mini-series came from a desire to share Crown’s campus through a storytelling format. Unlike any other school tour you’ve been on, this video series allows you to follow different characters as they invite you into their lives as Crown students. The goal was to showcase relatable scenarios happening all around Crown while simultaneously showing you different parts of campus and the surrounding area.
The entire cast and crew for Room + Board is made up of students, staff, faculty, and alumni. Not only that, but every episode was shot and edited utilizing equipment and production techniques associated with the college’s Communication degree program in Video and Film Production.
