âIt’s a great feeling when students use the skills they learned in class and use them to create something tangible,â said Tip Crowley, CEO of RSU Radio. âThese six students have been recognized for their exceptional work by many students across the state. This shows how exceptional RSU communication students are.
In addition to the OBEA awards, work by RSU students has been accepted at the Bare Bones Film Festival.
