The Journalism Department has a new look!

The second floor of Building 26, home to the Journalism Department, recently underwent a transformation. The walls were painted for the first time in about 17 years, and the old bulletin boards were replaced by new glass display boards, or “fish bowls,” to showcase information about classes, opportunities for students, and inspiration from department alumni.

“We wanted to really focus on every aspect of the department, and not leave anything out,” said fourth-year journalism major Brooke Cashin, who helped spearhead the project. “We wanted to make sure everyone was represented.” 

The transformation was covered by university funds and included new signs and changes to comply with state building codes and fire marshal requirements, The upgrades were pushed higher on the university’s schedule so the department would look its best during the accreditation visit in January.
