We're starting a new Public Relations Student Club in the Journalism Department, and the first meeting will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. Thursday, September 26, in ILC S405. Guest speaker Samantha Nearon will give a virtual talk about "My Post-Grad Career Journey:  Tips for Navigating Professional Communication Job Opportunities."

The Journalism Department is searching for an assistant professor who can expertly bridge the worlds of journalism practice and journalism studies. Review of applications for the position will begin on October 1, 2019.

Author Jen Schradie will talk about her new book, "The Revolution That Wasn't: How Digital Activism Favors Conservatives," at 11:30 a.m. Friday, September 27, in the Communication Department Hub on the 3rd floor of the ILC. The event is sponsored by the Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR), the Communication Department and the Political Science Department.
