Students Prepare for Popular Event at Champlain College

The Broadcast Media Production team in the Division of Communication and Creative Media will be filming and live broadcasting the  Rail Jam, a crowd favorite event at Champlain College, coming to campus on Nov. 3.

The Ski and Ride Club on campus will be the host for Rail Jam at Champlain College. Skiers and snowboarders have the chance to compete against each other in hopes of winning first place, which earns them a new pair of skis or a snowboard.

Keith Oppenheim, associate professor of Broadcast Media Production, is a huge contributor to this event. Oppenheim, along with students in the Broadcast Media Production program, run the event entirely on their own.

Oppenheim mentions there is a lot of stress that comes with this event because there is a lot of equipment to acquire, and things to plan, but “when it finally moves smoothly and I can let the students run it, it’s fun.”
