Uniformed Services University Wants You to USU-Tube

Uniformed Services University Wants You to USU-Tube

By SOP newswire

The University has launched a "USU-Tube" Video Contest to find the most meaningful, creative, descriptive, humorous, and/or innovative entries to showcase and increase knowledge about the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences to the general public, and especially potential USU applicants, as well as other audiences and constituencies.

USU Tube Video Contest Commercial,


  • All USU students, staff, faculty, alumni, residents and fellows may submit entries.
  • Video submissions must be no longer than 3 minutes, and may be based on one of the following themes:
    • A. Welcome to USU
    • B. Why I chose to come to USU
    • C. USU�s uniqueness

Entries may be serious or humorous and should speak to the entire university. Please be creative, but, the video must be on the level of a G or PG rating, so no profanity, nudity, etc.
Although we encourage you to showcase the physical campus, you will not be able to film in sensitive areas (i.e. LAM, ATL, etc.). In addition, please make sure to consult with/seek permission from instructors or supervisors in advance if you plan on filming during class or in your departments.
You may use your own video recorder, or you may check one out from the Multimedia Design Division, Room G070, if you don�t have one. Cameras will be loaned on a first come, first served basis and should be returned promptly so that others who need them may do so before the entry deadline.
Important: If you are planning to enter, you must send an email to the USU-Tube Video Contest Coordinator, SGT Jamie-Lea Divan, Multimedia Design Division, at BEFORE you begin videotaping.
If you are featuring individuals in your video, please ensure you have a signed release form for each person highlighted. These forms are also available in the Multimedia Design Division in Room G070.
Entries must be submitted on disk to SGT Divan in Room G070. A panel of judges from the university will review all submissions and select the winners. Winning entries will be used for USU recruitment purposes, on the USU website, and in a variety of informational and public relations materials.
Submit entries on disk only in Room G070 to USU-Tube coordinators.
If you have any questions, please contact SGT Divan at or 295-3386.
