Mystic Media Minute

Summer is here, and classes have begun, and the campus is starting to open ... slowly.

Several mass communications students are taking the Social Media, Writing & Design class, and the studio is getting continued updates. Check out the 'Things are hopping at the BSC Armory' video.

Mass Communications student Travis Askerooth is interning with College Relations this summer and part of his duties include keeping everyone informed with the weekly Mystic Media Minute. 

If you missed it:

The Mystician 81.9 is ready for reading with stories about what we lost with the pandemic, what is COVID-19 and some entertainment for the summer including a new crossword, a dance party and video games to tackle.

Check out  MystiCast 80. Daniel and Robbie hosted from home and Petra put everyone’s videos together. There is some awesome bike riding, cooking techniques, a virus mystery  and maybe someone can figure out what happened to the lemon. 

And for your summer listening pleasure, The MYX added new podcasts and outdoor speakers.

A reminder, if you haven't signed up for your fall classes yet, now is the time. Contact the MACC if you need help, and if you are interested, check below for a list of 2020 fall semester communications class options--open to all students


Come be a part of Mystic Media.

Also, a page was added for the Media Students' Portfolios to show off all the hard work completed by mass communications students this year.

Things are hopping at the BSC Armory

Dusty Anderson added speakers to the outside of the main entrance to the Armory, so if you are passing by or want to take a break on the benches, you can enjoy listening toThe MYX .


And that's not all ... thanks to KFYR, who donated a broadcast set, the crew will be working this summer to refurbish it for the Mystic Media studio.
