Pinterest Makes its Way to SJSU

Pinterest Makes its Way to SJSU

Lucas School pinboard featuring San Jose.

Check out this Lucas School pinboard showcasing all San Jose has to offer students.

By Ryan Whitchurch, Public Affairs Assistant

Pinterest, one of the fastest growing social media sites in history, has taken campus by storm. For example, a graduate program and journalism class have adopted this new social media tool into their marketing tactics and curricula.

The Donald and Sally Lucas Graduate School of Business and Mass Communications 139 are utilizing this tool to bring more attention from the outside community to what is happening on campus.

“It (Pinterest) allows prospective students, particularly international students, to imagine themselves at San Jose State University, and shows them the faces of the people they will encounter if they become students,” said Catherine Dougherty, Lucas School program coordinator.

In this way, the Lucas School is using this social media tool in an attempt to recruit more students into their program.

Dougherty says that the use of Pinterest allows their department to show the university to potential students by displaying photos.

The various “pinboards” on the Lucas Graduate School of Business Pinterest site draw attention to the beauty of the SJSU campus and showcase the programs that this college provides.

MCOM 139 is a class being offered by Michael Brito in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications. Brito’s class has also begun using Pinterest to help his students keep hip to current trends occurring within social media.

“It helps keep my students at the forefront of technology,” Brito said. “With new networks emerging daily, it’s important for students to be ahead of the curve.”

Brito challenges his students to regularly post content relevant to social media onto Pinterest in an effort to build their understanding of the site and further develop their personal brand.

The use of Pinterest at San Jose State University is rapidly growing and these two examples are on the front line of bringing this new medium into the classroom.

Check out the Lucas MBA Programs Pinterest account to see what this school has to offer, and the MCOM 139’s Pinterest account to see what Brito’s students are saying about social media.

Spartans Adding Women's Outdoor Track in 2013-14

By SJSU Athletics

SJSU Spartan Shield blue and gold in color.

Courtesy: San Jose State Athletics San Jose State's first women's track team will compete in 2014.

For the first time since 1997, San Jose State University is adding to its NCAA Division I intercollegiate athletics program. With a keen interest in enhancing its women’s cross country team, the Spartans plan to add outdoor track beginning with the 2013-14 season.

Since sponsoring women’s cross country in 1994, team members were limited to local races as individual entries during the traditional outdoor track season months of March through June. With the addition of women’s outdoor track, the Spartans can compete as a team locally, regionally and in conference competition, for a conference championship, and qualify for the NCAA Championships.

“We are in an advantageous position to enhance our women’s cross country team with the addition of women’s track as our newest NCAA Division I athletics program. This decision will give our existing cross country team members a better overall intercollegiate athletics experience and we will be able to attract a more diverse and talented pool of prospective female student-athletes from high schools and community colleges,” said Athletics Director Tom Bowen.

Spartan Shops Brings “Street Eats” to Campus

By Ryan Whitchurch, Public Affairs Assistant

Flyer of the Street Eats event on 2/22 displaying their logo and twitter name.

Street Eats will bring exciting food from the streets of San Jose right to the hungry students on campus (Spartan Shops image).

At noon, Feb. 22 — that’s this Wednesday — SJSU will introduce a new food concept that will allow Spartans to get a little variety in their lunch selection.

Spartan Shops’ first Street Eats event will feature Vietnamese sandwiches, including beef, chicken, and tofu options.

For this trial run, the food will be free-of-charge and given out on a first-come-first-serve basis while supplies last. The location of the event will be leaked Wednesday morning via the Street Eats Twitter page.

“We’re really excited about this fun, new concept. It will provide students with a variety of food options that they otherwise would not be able to find on campus,” said Stephanie Shih Fabian, Spartan Shops marketing manager.

This event is part of a larger effort from Spartan Shops to bring cutting-edge cuisine that can be found around San Jose right to the hungry students on campus. Students will be able to purchase food from tents in locations that will vary weekly. Food options will include anything and everything from Korean barbecue tacos to sandwiches, burritos, and much more.

Be sure to follow along the Street Eats Twitter page for the latest on upcoming dates and locations.

Alumni Take Dark Room on the Road

By Ryan Whitchurch, Student Assistant

Pictured here is The Photo Palace Bus that has two Volkswagon Station Wagons mounted on the top.

Pictured here, the bus will have a photo studio equipped with a darkroom, presentation station, a light studio, and two Volkswagen station wagons on top that will serve as sleeping quarters.

Two San Jose State University alumni have set out to remind Americans about the time-honored traditions and artistic beauty of darkroom photography.

Anton Orlov, ’06 BFA, and Ryan Kalem, ’11 BFA, are raising funds to build The Photo Palace, a mobile art studio housed within a vintage 35-foot, 1978 Gillig school bus that the two will use to travel across the United States teaching the art of analog and darkroom photography.

The bus will have a fully functioning photo studio equipped with a two-station darkroom, a presentation and workshop station, a light studio, and two Volkswagen station wagons welded to the top that will serve as sleeping quarters.

“When digital photography exploded, many old tenets of analog photography were forgotten, darkrooms soon seemed all but obsolete,” Orlov wrote on their Kickstarter fundraising page. “Traditional photographic printing methods allow the photographer a greater degree of interaction with their work.”

Visiting all 48 continental states, the two will teach photographic education, as well as create and present their works along the way. With plans to roll out this summer, The Photo Palace will provide lectures and demonstrations; offer workshops on gelatin silver printing and alternative photo processes; and hold impromptu and planned photographic showings. The Photo Palace will also be creating a  documentary portrait series on the road.

Check in with Orlov and Kalem as they travel across the continental United States inspiring thousands of Americans, coast-to-coast, as they share their talents and passions with all those they encounter. You can follow the Orlov and Kalem on the The Photo Palace blog or make a donation to lend your support as they work toward transforming their dream into reality.

San Jose State University Athletics recently concluded a weekend celebration honoring Darnell Hillman with his #45 jersey being retired

San Jose State University Athletics recently concluded  a weekend celebration honoring Darnell Hillman with his #45 jersey being retired.

Hillman played for the Spartans’ freshman team in 1967-68 and the 1968-69 varsity squad that posted a 16-8 win-loss record. After a two-year stint in the U.S. Army, he became the first San Jose State player chosen in the first round of a NBA draft. In the 1971 draft, the Golden State Warriors made him the eighth pick overall. He played 682 professional games in the ABA and NBA for five different teams.

Today, he is the Indiana Pacers’ associate director for community relations and specializes in camps and clinics.
