Student Documentaries

Prof. Han's fall Documentary class (COMM357) produced nine documentaries with topics ranging from an investigation into the 1980 VanRaalte Hall fire to the famous (infamous?) and distinctive culture of Durfee Hall, to the passionate members of Vanderprov, the “College’s one and only improvisational comedy group” to name just a few.

Click here for a sneak preview and a behind-the-scenes look at the student-produced pieces.
