Just a little video of me saying hi!
Hello readers! My name is Mark Willson. Maybe you have seen me around campus, maybe you haven’t. Maybe you’ve seen some of my work on the Tyler Hall North Wall. My unofficial slogan of late has been the simple statement, “Be”. That’s what I’d like to talk about for my first post as a student blogger.
Be. It is only two letters, yet it carries a world of meaning. What does it mean to me, you ask? It means exist. It means be an active agent in your environment. My environment is SUNY Oswego. Yours probably is too if you are reading this.
So to kick off this new school year, I encourage all of you to get out there and do something outside of your comfort zone, get involved on campus and in the greater Oswego community, and you will BE.
In the meantime, enjoy this entertaining excerpt from Open Mic Night (which you can catch/be a part of every Thursday at the Lake Effect Cafe!) :
Students in our human-computer interaction graduate program presented several sessions at Quest, many related to video games and learning. Among them:
You can also see a video of Graham rocking out during his presentation.
As Harry Potter fever swept the country , Oswego, NY, was no exception. Fans of the film series gathered shortly after 7 p.m nearly 5 hours before the special midnight release.
The release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2 , marks the end of a successful and fan adored series. Fans have anxiously awaited 9 months for the finale after the cliff hanger of Deathly Hollows Part 1 this past November.
The line trailed the entire length of
Hogwarts the Oswego Cinema 7 block and even stretched around the corner at one point. The line contained a wide variety of fans from families , adult fans to small children obviously up past normal bedtime hours for the special occasion.Two lines were organized for movie goers. One for 2D and another for those wishing to witness the dramatic showdown in 3D( the first film of the franchise’s shown in 3D).
Lines started to move promptly at 11:05. Movie attendees were then ushered to various theater rooms, as it seemed that the entire movie house was temporarily transformed into a Harry Potter movie viewing complex. Many were ushered to theaters downstairs ,while others were shown additional seating upstairs. The movie started shortly after 12 a.m (12:08 a.m)
