Please email us if you have a class conflict. 

The Journalism Department invites all alumni and friends of Howard Ziff to campus Saturday, September 26, for a reunion and dedication of our student space. Please visit our registration site for details. 

David Maraniss, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and associate editor at The Washington Post, will read from his new book, "Once in a Great City: A Detroit City" at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23 in room N301, the Communication Hub, of the ILC.
