Film Student Nolan Gold Connects Capstone Students with Coffee Creek Correctional Facility

Film major Nolan Gold filmed Higher Education in Prison Capstone students introducing themselves and talking about their experiences of being a student during Covid while conveying messages of hope to the women in Coffee Creek Correctional Facility who they were unable to meet due to the pandemic. If not for lockdown restrictions, the capstone students would have studied alongside the women in Coffee Creek who are taking college classes while in the facility. Danielle, who is working towards her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration while in Coffee Creek, watched the video in the facility's common area and sent a letter of appreciation to the capstone students. She writes, "Here's to a day when we can all sit down together and talk about our shared yet separate experiences." The film shows the importance of forging connection during this time of disconnection.
