REAL FRESHMEN LIFE EXPOSED AT NYU
Student-run WebTV Series Documents Freshman Life at NYU
The Princeton Review has deemed New York University the number one dream school in the
nation. What does “dream school” life entail? Collegivity, a student-run production company
founded at NYU, is determined to find out.
My Freshman Year documents significant moments in the life of one NYU freshman student,
Farrah Brittany A, as a weekly WebTV series. The initial episodes followed her preparation for
college over the summer of 2006 before culminating in the very day she leaves her home in Los
Angeles for the island of Manhattan. While not all students can relate to the experience of
moving 3,000 miles away from home, all university students can relate to the changes and new
experiences of freshman year.
Whether or not you believe NYU is the number one dream school in America, this show
documents the poignant experiences one encounters as they leave home for college. The
added bonus is seeing what going to school in New York City is really like. The appeal of the
show extends beyond the aspiring NYU applicants in high school but to fellow collegians who
attend suburban, enclosed-campuses. The setting is exhilarating, the school is ambitious, and
the experiences are 100% entertaining.
All webisodes are available online at collegivity.com. The producer of My Freshman Year as
well as the marketing, public relations and music team are all currently college students. Thus
the show’s soundtrack features music by independent college bands and artists picked straight
from student submissions that were posted on the website.
