Syracuse Student Life 360

From the Carrier Dome to the chancellor's house, this immersive project provides a glimpse of campus life from the perspective of SU students.

If you've ever wanted to step inside Chancellor Kent Syverud’s residence, get a taste of Faegan’s Tuesday Night Beer Tour and cheer on the men’s basketball team right from the Carrier Dome student section, here is your chance with an interactive project that revolves around several 360-degree and virtual reality videos.

Explore Student Life 360, an immersive experience featuring several 360-degree and virtual reality videos.

A team of 19 journalism majors used traditional and innovative journalistic techniques to explore five areas of the SU experience, including virtual reality 360-degree video as the key visual for each theme. One team spent several evenings capturing rehearsals for three of SU’s dance organizations while another team ventured to Beak & Skiff’s 1911 Cider House to learn how the popular beverage is made.

The student journalists were all Syracuse University juniors, seniors and graduate students enrolled in the Newhouse School‘s Web Journalism & Innovation class. Some of the techniques explored in the class and reflected in the project include 360-degree video, time-lapse video, social media engagement, and data scraping, analysis and visualization.
