Murray Edwards is an amazing college which truly is like no other, so why don’t more people know about us?
As this year’s JCR Access Officer I am passionate about improving the visibility of Murray Edwards to schools, colleges and the world in general, in the hope of attracting more applicants to our wonderful college. I also wanted to capitalise on the more innovative, less traditional college life we enjoy here at Murray Edwards in an attempt to dispel the myth that Cambridge is a stuffy, elitist environment.
I thought that a perfect way to do this was to create a video – one showing everyday life at college, reflections from some of our current students and our more unique aspects – including our tepee, free library and Dome.
So, how did we make the video? For me it was important to show what life is really like at college; I wanted to show the college’s wonderful students, gardens and environment. There were no external camera crews (just my sister), no scripted interviews, just everyday college life and our annual Garden Party. It was filmed, edited and finished in just a few days – with a special thanks to the beautiful weather, our great student interviewees and the quick work of my sister Amelia.
If you have any questions about life at Murray Edwards, applying or regarding this video please contact Eloise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
