OSU participates in mtvU’s “Student Bodies”


CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State University has collaborated with mtvU to produce new episodes for the network’s “Student Bodies” television series, involving two sorority sisters and two fraternity brothers.

The series is available Jan. 13-15 on Oregon State University’s television network on channel 18 and on mtvU’s website at http://bit.ly/weqbS1

The competitors were split into two teams involving one member from each group, the orange team and the black team. The teams underwent a physical test, led by ex-Special Forces Maj. Brian Harrington, to test their initial physical fitness, with the black team coming out on top. The two teams each were assigned an Army ROTC cadet to help train them in their six week challenge to become more physically fit.

At the end of the six weeks, they will come together for a final test to see which team improved the most. The winners will receive a trip to mtvU’s Spring Break in Las Vegas.

A television network directed towards college students, mtvU aims to highlight their interests, talents, and achievements and to connect them to other colleges in the nation. It runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on more than 750 college campuses, and can be viewed in the dining areas, fitness centers, student lounges and residence halls.

The next on-air showings will be Friday, Jan. 13, 9-10 a.m. and 4-5 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 14, 6-7 a.m. and 3-4 p.m.; and Sunday, Jan. 15, 1-2 p.m. and 6-7 p.m.
