New video tells the story of Matteo Ricci College's namesake.

Recently Matteo Ricci College faculty member Greg Stump teamed up with students Lauren Brogan and Connor Rice on a promotional video for the college. The video, "Bridging the World from West to East: The Story of Father Matteo Ricci, S.J.," tells the story of Matteo Ricci-the man-through narration by Rice and highly detailed and descriptive illustrations from Stump. 

"I was a little apprehensive at first because I've never tried to do an animation like this before," Stump says of the video product, "and I actually had to ask Connor and Lauren not to watch me doing the actual drawing once the camera was set up, because I kept freezing up. But I'm really happy with the way it turned out-even though I know all the little tricks involved it still looks like a feat of magic."
