UPDATE: Per the recommendation of some of our commenters, you may also want to check out "A Day as a Matador" for a point-of-view perspective of campus:
ADDITIONAL NOTE ON THE TITLE: When the video aired on television, it conformed exactly to the standard 30-second commercial length. On the YouTube upload, the video is still 30 seconds long, but there is a split second of black at the tail end, after the video has faded out and is, for all intents and purposes, over. These extra black frames cause the YouTube player counter to round up and display the length as 31 seconds. Thanks for your understanding.
