EMU venturing into the community, making damn good videos

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I heard that the Eastern Michigan University office of Campus Life had produced a video about the Ypsi Food Co-op, but I was pleasantly surprised when, after thinking about it for a few days, I finally sat down and watched what they’d come up with… Here it is.

One hopes they keep the series going, as it has tons of potential.

[note: If you do go to the Co-op before the end of the month, be sure to take one of these 10% off coupons with you.]

    Another interesting topic might be community gardens. Granted, a lot of students aren’t around during the growing season, but I think that students would be interested to know that there’s a vital local food movement in Ypsi.

    I’d also suggest a video of influential cartoonist and animator Winsor McCay, who got his start here in Ypsi. I think the images would be awesome.

    VG Kids might make a nice subject, as it’s a successful arts related business that hires EMU students and grads.

    Not to denigrate VG at all (and I mean, not at all), but doesn’t it seem kind of depressing to hear that EMU grads should be excited to have a career in entry level factory work?

    I’m sure there are many talented people who didn’t have the luxury of having gone to a 4 year college that really could use a job there.

    I think young students want to live in a town with a vibrant arts scene, and VG was the first place that wasn’t a bar to come to mind. They may be light industrial, but the work I’ve seen from them has always been good, and I think that EMU students would like to know that some of their favorite bands have things made and designed in Ypsilanti.

    I would also recommend that they do one about First Fridays.

    Again, I’m not calling VG out. I think they are a fine company which does good work.
