If you haven’t seen already, the University’s official website has been changed, changed to faces of students, each showcasing their own story and journey through UC.
I highly recommend that you read every profile, if possible, I’m still getting through the list myself! Every individual has their own story and that one unique experience that just has to be shared. The stories are precise and the faces are captivating, but what they don’t reveal is the making of it and the process behind compiling all the faces and stories of the campaign.
I was fortunate enough again to be part of this captivating campaign with other students whose stories just don’t fail to impress. Being a part of it means I have first hand knowledge of how it all came together (so you can really trust your source now).
It started out with an initial screening of 45 students who were then narrowed down to 20. The screening consisted of a mugshot with a questionnaire to go with it. These questionnaires and faces were then put together and the best, most inspiring 20 were showcased.
Other than the website, these images are going be circulated on billboards across town. Key locations include the Airport, Blenheim Road, Papanui and one right on campus by University Drive! So keep an eye out, you may just find a mate on there.
So if you haven’t read the stories yet, get going! They are all truly inspirational and give great insights into what UC has to offer.
