MTV Made casting opportunity for Washburn students, April 26

MTV’s three-time Emmy Award-winning series, MADE has an opportunity for Washburn University students.

The economy has been especially hard on recent college graduates, and many students must wonder what their future holds. MTV is developing new episodes that will offer college students valuable real life experiences and give them a chance to live out their dreams. MTV will ask students: “If you could have any opportunity what would it be?” Maybe they want to start a business. Perhaps they seek true love. Or do they simply want to figure out what they want to do in life? We want to hear about the goals that they think might be unattainable and help them find their paths in this uncertain world.

MTV will have a producer on campus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26. The casting process involves one or two producers coming to interview students with a small web camera.

Students must sign up prior to the event and spots are limited. The sign up can be found in the student activities and Greek life office, located on the lower level, Memorial Union.
