Admission video wins gold medal

Princeton NJ -- Beginnings," a 17-minute video produced last year for the Office of Admission, has been selected for a gold medal in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education's annual Circle of Excellence Awards Program.

The video, which won first place in the "video recruitment features category," focuses on students as they embark on the Princeton experience. Drawing on conversations with students, faculty members and President Tilghman as she began her first year in office, it attempts to describe to potential applicants the nature and uniqueness of Princeton, and the kinds of experiences students have as they begin college.

The video was produced by Andy Greenspan, who also produced the University's previous admission video in 1992 and a video on "defining moments" in Princeton's history in connection with the University's 250th anniversary, both of which also won gold medals. The production was coordinated by Vice President for Public Affairs Robert Durkee and Dean of Admission Fred Hargadon.

The video exists in VHS and DVD format, and is used by admission staff and alumni schools committee volunteers as they meet with potential applicants. It can be viewed in various formats on the admission office Web site: Copies are available for a nominal fee from Tom Bartus in the Office of Communications at
