Video: Cool Things to do with a GoPro

“Hey man, you got a GoPro? Right on. Let’s take it out and go shred” – Every shaggy-haired kid with a GoPro, ever.
Or so I imagine.

I’ve got mixed feelings about the GoPro. On one hand, it’s this awesome, durable camera that can go anywhere and do anything, and anyone with 300 bucks can strap a camera to their helmet and make high intensity films that previously only people with a lot of resources could make – but at the same time.. anyone with 300 bucks can just strap a camera to their helmet and off they go. Well, to each his own I suppose. Let’s just not talk about those kids who grab a GoPro for their weekend in Vail with their family. Instead, I present to you some awesomely cool things to do with a GoPro:

We’ve all seen the sports vids, how about…

1. Get In Touch with Nature
And I mean really get in touch:

Some say this isn’t real, but I say it’s cool either way.

Lions, sharks, and seagulls, oh my! That’s how that goes, right?

2. Attach it to your dog
Ok, ok, maybe it’s not the most original idea and maybe dogs don’t exactly like having a camera on their collar, but come on! So cute!

See? Adorable.

3. Attach it to an RC car…

4. …Or a Hula Hoop

There you have it. Check back often for the Video Department’s video posts.

What makes the Gavel so BANGin’? All the bangin’ people who work for it and the fast, savvy reporting.
You have 24 hours to give prospective students a tour of BC and convince them to enroll. How do you spend the day? Eat a Tuscan chicken at Eagle’s Nest and they’re probably already sold.
If you could go back in time and give yourself a pep talk the night before you moved into BC as a freshman, what is the most important piece of advice that you would give to your former self? Don’t ironically wear a wolf t-shirt on the first day. It really, really won’t help make friends.
What is your favorite study spot on campus? Burns lawn. Or lounging on my couch.
What is your go-to meal at Late Night? Mozzarella sticks. Woop!
What is the #1 most played song on your iTunes? "El Sorcho" by Weezer
What is the best Halloween costume that you have ever worn? Princess Leia, two years in a row, 3rd and 4th grade.
If you could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Bertucci’s. Bread.
If you could befriend the main characters from any TV show or movie, who would you choose and why? I’d probably befriend Lindsey & the gang from "Freaks and Geeks" because (1) Jason Segel and (2) I would be the one to tell her that the Grateful Dead will be touring for years, DECADES, even, and she should just go to the math camp for the summer and think about her future.
