DePaul Goes Social Media

Justin Gillmar sent me a link to the "This is DePaul" student video contest. as Justin says...

"Laugh at the ones you love. Quietly scoff at the ones you don't. Then let your voting do the talking. Your votes will be used to determine the Audience Choice Award (aka'The Academy Might Have Overlooked It, But the People Couldn't Get Enough Of It' Award). Still reading this? What are you waiting for, go check out the videos! Voting ends May 25th."

The complete list of videos can be found here.
