To add more multimedia to journalism at Kean University, The Tower has launched its new online video section.

The section, which is in its first semester of production, will feature a variety of segments related to the on and off the campus.

First in the series of online video segments is “Fifty Shades of Kean,” which went public during the last week of February. The segment included Editor-In-Chief of The Tower, Bryan Kuriawa and Phil Giannino, of WKNJ-FM, asking students questions regarding the film “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

“Fifty Shades of Kean” uncovered how Kean students feel about the film. Students, many of whom are excited to go see “Fifty Shades of Grey,” responded in positive manner.

However, students also expressed their concern for the film, citing the promotion of abusive relationships. Of the students interviewed, a majority have not seen the film.

“Fifty Shades of grey,” is about Christian Grey, CEO of Grey Enterprises, who has a passion for erotic acts, such as bondage (BDSM.) The film focuses on the erotic relationship between Mr. Grey and Anastasia Steele.

The Tower, which publishes four print newspaper issues per semester, will continue to include a variety of video segments at the time each newspaper is published. If you have an idea for future video segments, send an email to
