SSTV: An Underrated Club that Offers a lot for Students

By Luke Miller

At Stockton University, there are many great clubs and organizations to join. There is a variety for any and all majors. One club, in particular, that offers a lot to people, whether if they are a Communication Major or not, is Stockton Student TV. They are a club made to create programming for Stockton Students covering news about the school or events ran by the school. Students are also able to work on their own personal projects. They allow students to rent equipment to work on those projects, as well. This club is a great opportunity for students to learn more about film and TV production.

After speaking with Jackson Boisvert, a freshman at Stockton and member of SSTV, he stated, “ I joined SSTV because I’m interested in doing something TV related when I’m older and I enjoy doing on camera productions. Plus I really wanted to get involved with something communications related as a freshman.” Jackson spoke about a project him and fellow classmate, Colton Van Cleave, started in the Fall 2017 semester, called “The Nest”, which is a weekly news show in which Jackson and Colton cover Stockton events. This project was their idea as well, which SSTV helped execute by providing equipment and support. Jackson also said “If you’re interested in getting involved with the communication program here at Stockton, or you’re interested in film or camera work or even editing, you can find something to do in SSTV.”

Jackson is a great example of finding this opportunity, and now he has began his resume building thanks to SSTV. The club offers a lot to students and if interested in joining, check out their studio on the second floor of the campus center! This club would be great for any student at Stockton, and it is never too late to get involved.
