24 Hours in Photos Captures Many Facets, Faces of Campus
From early-morning Zamboni drivers and bakers to students taking part in athletics and the arts throughout the evening, the 24 Hours in Photos project captured many faces and facets of SUNY Oswego over the course of one day.
The project sought activities from 12:01 a.m. to midnight Friday, Dec. 2.
Tim Nekritz M '05, associate director of public affairs and director of Web communication, conceived and coordinated the project, but received a lot of help from students and social media. Campus community members were invited to submit images via blogging software Posterous, Twitter or email.
Many photos came from a corps of student interns and volunteers, but additional submissions poured in from students, faculty and staff from across campus.
The resulting timeline, constructed in a program called Dipity, incorporates around 150 images.
Activities captured early in the morning - such as University Police rounds, students populating Penfield Library's 24-Hour room around 3 a.m., a Zamboni making a 3:12 a.m. pass over the ice, the Student Association Volunteer Ambulance Corps standing guard and the campus bakery producing a full range of goods - show how many things happen behind the scenes while most of the world sleeps, Nekritz said.
The hundreds of photos submitted will be incorporated into other multimedia formats, such as slideshows and perhaps video.
