Undergraduate students document life at Hamline for the small screen

vlogger group final

Consider it Hamline’s version of a reality show. Undergraduate students are using video blogs to offer an authentic look at life on and off campus this year. From first years to seniors, on-campus residents to commuters, and representing a variety of majors, athletic interests, and student organization involvement, the video bloggers have Hamline covered from every angle.

Along the way, viewers will see Bilé's top five favorite spots on campus, Rachel’s scary Halloween movie, Christian’s athletic prowess, Pa’s work with the Hmong Student Association, Lee’s trip to Chicago with the A Cappella Choir, Arizona-native Ruby’s first Minnesota blizzard, Kyle’s experiences with the Theta Chi Fraternity, and much more.

Find out more about the individual bloggers by reading their profiles below and then take a look at their YouTube channels. To see all their posts in one place, check out the Hamline video blog on Wordpress.
