This is a paid leadership position that helps incoming freshmen adjust to the UO both academically and socially. First-Year Programs has openings that are specifically in need of students familiar with Cinema Studies or Digital Arts.

At the end of the term we will showcase these works at our own art show/exhibit that we curate and promote as a way of highlighting the practical value of fair use within creative communities.
