Be a Part of the Global Initiative

The Graduate School has embarked on an exciting initiative to develop a brand new interactive mapping website/video archive for all FSU degree-seeking or professional graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, alumni and faculty called GradWorld FSU. GradWorld FSU is a revolutionary website very similar to Google Earth which displays a variety of personalized videos from a number of departments/colleges on campus for the purpose of showcasing graduate student achievements and their tremendous contributions to the university.This is an extraordinary opportunity for everyone around the world to see your passion, interests, research goals and learn more about our wonderful university. As you know, graduate school changes lives and the world for the better! Once others see you talking with such enthusiasm and excitement about all of the amazing things you are doing, they too will want to join in on the fun and become part of this great scholarly community known as "Family FSU", or if they are employees, maybe even offer you a job!

GradWorld FSU serves not only as a spectacular venue to reflect on your wonderful accomplishments, but hopefully, will also new graduate students to create their own videos too. Our aim is to not only highlight our brilliant students but also to attract potential graduate students from the USA and the rest of the world to apply to FSU and join this great scholarly community! 

* The GradWorld FSU Website is almost ready and is now in the final stages of development. 


What Are The Benefits To This Professional Development Opportunity?

In today's competitive job market, crafting a short, 3-8 minute video could be the deciding factor that helps you shine and land your dream job! It's true, not only do video productions unlock your creative-side, but they also show employers that you are a determined, motivated, and highly engaged individual who wants to make a difference. This professional development opportunity provides you with an exceptional chance to showcase your personality, research, skills, and passion that will inevitably cement a memory that you will be able to share with your family and friends. Our hope is that during your time at FSU you create an initial "Phase I" Questionnaire Video (see details below), which can be done using your own smartphone/digital camera or laptop webcam and then perhaps later, a more detailed "Phase II" GEOSET Research Presentation Video. Just imagine their proud smiling faces beaming back at you! And don't forget, this is something you can also highlight in your professional portfolio or on your social media accounts (i.e., LinkedIn). 

Phase I- Questionnaire Video

Self-Filming Video Recording Option

*If you speak a language in addition to English, we strongly encourage you to complete and submit two versions of your video; one version in English and a duplicate version in your native or secondary language. This allows everyone in the world to enjoy your video, including those who may not be fluent in English.

Phase I- Questionnaire Video:

*Tutorial videos and guides on how to create and edit a questionnaire video can be found by clicking here!

*5-8 Minutes in Total Length Per Video (one minute per question is suggested)
*Recorded on Smartphone, Screencast-O-Matic, Video Camera or other filming device.
*Please answer the Following Questions In the Specified Order 

We suggest treating each question below as its own individual video and answering the questions separately as it may make it easier for you to record in individual takes. *It is strongly encouraged though that the full video be submitted as one complete MP4 file.

*Submission instructions are detailed in the left-hand navigation.
