At the time, Baylor’s chapter of the Student American Medical Association was aiming to boost its membership by offering new activities such as intramural sports and video screenings. Digital inventions such as DVD, Blu-Ray and online streaming have since taken the place of VHS. However, as these two students demonstrate, VHS may be long gone but never forgotten.
