News stories have really picked up in intensity both inside and outside of Taiwan in the last few years. There are stories of drug-related issues, kidnappings, terrorist organizations, stabbings and more. Senior students of the Department of Mass Communication have selected these intense stories as the theme for their graduation achievement display that took place from May 6-8 at the Song Shan Cultural Park. On May 10 the display will be brought to Tamkang University’s Black Swan Exhibition Hall.
The theme has been titled “Born to be Wild.” It refers to an ideal of Tamkang University’s 30 years of collecting data for news that is connected and unbiased. Event Organizer of the graduation achievement display, Lo Tsai, expressed, “The title of this event points to the fact that we will not be restrained as we seek to give a continual stream of media that impacts our lives. In step with the operations of the Cultural Park’s Campus Connection, we’ve gathered a versatile surplus of achievements to share with the rest of the world. It consists of awards given for filming, editing and telling of stories that have better helped us face issues of modern society.”
In recent years the Taiwanese community has becoming increasingly uneasy. On the news there is a constant stream related to drug incidents and drug abuse. Statistics point out that 1 in every 100 persons is a drug abuser. 6 students of the Department of Mass Communication: Jia-ying Hu, Qi-hua Zhang, Qi-ting Cent, Xin-yan Liu Yi-ru Chen and Feng-shi Lin have made their documentary titled “Embrace” to enlighten people on the dangers of a lifestyle involving drugs. Their project, in addition to works of other diligent students of the department will make for an exciting and informative academic display.
