Each Thursdays, November 15, November 29, and December 8 at 2:30 p.m., students in Electronic Media 2170 are recording “What’s the Word?” And, they need 12 players per day! The game is based on the classic TV game show, “Password.” Two teams of two players compete to get their partners to guess the “secret word” using only one word clues. Winners get prizes, too! Players will compete for Ohio University branded merchandise, like T-shirts, pen and pencil sets, water bottles, and key chains. The show is recorded in Elson 245.

Student players will be required to sign a talent release form allowing Ohio University to use their images, so clips from the show can be used in recruiting for the Electronic Media program. If you would like to be a player on “What’s the Word,” contact Professor Rick Shriver at
