2010 Commencement date changed

Body: 
  September 21, 2009 Delaware State University has changed the 2010 Commencement to May 23 because the previously set date would conflict with the Dover Downs race weekend. Dover Downs informed DSU officials that NASCAR had moved its race weekend dates to May 14-16, prompting the University’s change in the 2010 Commencement date to avoid the conflict with the mass of race fans that come to Dover that weekend.  

DSU TV production students work NASCAR

Description: 

 

DSU television production students Anthony Edwards, John Haynesworth, Salihah Wilson, Kevin Davis and Nicole will assist ESPN and ABC-TV with the broadcasts of this weekend NASCAR races in Dover.

Body: 
  September 25, 2009 When ESPN and ABC-TV crews broadcast the Sept. 26-27 NASCAR races in Dover, five DSU mass communication majors will be assisting them in televising both races to worldwide audiences. The five television production students – Anthony Edwards, John Haynesworth, Salihah Wilson, Kevin Davis and Nicole Brown – will work as production assistants for both networks. They will be doing everything from helping with monitors, transporting equipment and anything else is needed.   “It gives us real world experience on how a live production is done,” said Kevin Davis, a junior who has also been selected to work as a production intern for NBC-TV at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada.   The opportunities to work with the major networks at this year’s NASCAR races in Dover were facilitated by Vince “Chelli” Ciammaichelli, broadcast studio manager/instructor. “A lot of my efforts are geared to get my students in the broadcast arena,” Mr. Ciammaichelli said. “Anytime I can get the students out of the classroom and into the studio or the field with the broadcast professionals, it is great for their overall experience and growth.”   John Haynesworth, a senior mass communication major, said Mr. Chelli’s efforts are appreciated. “Opportunities like this allow us to see what goes on behind that scenes and gives us a better outlook on what we want to do,” he said. “It allows use to see and be a part of the professionalism that is involved.”
