The Students’ Association’s television station, SATV, is now running on channel 24 on the campus cable system.
Any student using the campus’ cable system will be able to watch the station, and two televisions in the campus center will usually always be running it.
The station is currently running mainly national news, sports and entertainment updates that are received from a company, and it will eventually include more announcements and updates from SA and Campus Life.
“The way I think Campus Life is picturing [SATV] is a way to replace Chapel announcements,” said Layne Rouse, SA vice president.
Many things about SATV are still undecided, Rouse said, most notably the possible addition of an intern position.
That intern would be in charge of putting the information on the station, Rouse said.
Rouse said having an intern would be a good addition.
“You’re starting to talk about a lot of information that can become overwhelming for one person unless that is their specific job,” Rouse said.
Should Campus Life decide not to have an intern, the operation of SATV would fall mainly to Jennifer Yee, chief communication officer for SA.
Yee envisions SATV as a good way for student groups to advertise their events.
“It should increase awareness and enable and empower student groups to get the news out about their events,” Yee said.
Rouse said that now, as SATV is just beginning to get started, is the best time to create its vision.
“Right now is the perfect time to dream and lay out ideas,” Rouse said. “Right now, the sky’s the limit for SATV.”
