Hot Dog Caper Serves Up Food and Fun

Grooving to 1960s tunes by the band Aquarius, Cal Poly Pomona students, staff and faculty celebrated the start of the new school year at the 32nd annual Hot Dog Caper.

Participants consumed more than 16,000 hot dogs and veggie dogs, as well as more than 14,000 drinks and 12,000 bags of chips.

The Cal Poly Pomona Foundation hosted the Oct. 8 event, which also featured photo booths, airbrush tattoo artists, an inflatable obstacle course, prizes, games hosted by Associated Students Inc., and more.

Poly Life, a student-developed program produced through MediaVision, captured the excitement of the day.


IT Division Earns Award for Classroom Technology Video

Cal Poly Pomona’s IT Division received a Telly Award for a video demonstrating new classroom technologies.

The webisode was awarded a Bronze Telly in the Education: Online Video category in an international competition involving 12,000 commercial, video and film production entries. Rather than competing against one another, entrants were judged on “a high standard of excellence.”

The video, titled “Ask the Polytechies: Campus Technology,” is part of a web series created by IT communication specialist Angela Mahoney, who wrote and co-edited the video.

The multimedia education graduate student said her role in the video was to “communicate the topic effectively and in a way that’s entertaining.”
