South by Southwest (SXSW)

Are you interested in music, film, interactive media, marketing, promotions, or the arts and need a 3 credit hour class? If you are looking for a fun and interesting way to earn credit hours, look no further.

Dr. Jon Pluskota is taking a group of students to the South by Southwest festival from March 7th – 17th. Participating students will be flying to Austin, Texas on March 7th and will be staying for 10 days. This year’s festival includes keynote speeches from Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal, Elon Musk of SpaceX, Julie Uhrman of OUYA, and many more sessions and workshops.

Participating students will be volunteering 70-80 hours during the festival in exchange for a Platinum badge, which grants you maximum access and isn’t typically available to first time volunteers.

This 300-level course does include a $1500 course fee does apply. However, this does cover the cost of your transportation and hotel. Students will also be required to meet with the group before, during, and after the trip.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Dr. John Pluskota at AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
