Take a look at the J-School's new digs

Journalism: Looking toward the next century

When Walter Williams founded the School of Journalism July 1, 1908, news came to the masses in newspapers, radio was experimental and television was decades in the future. Today, journalists and advertisers are still figuring out what the Internet and other new technologies may mean for them. In 2008, the J-School looks forward to the next century from a new facility where students, faculty and working journalists are inventing the future of journalism. On Sept. 10–12, the school celebrated its centennial not only with social and scholarly events but also by dedicating a new building to house the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute, provided by an initial gift of $31 million from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. The following slide show offers images and information about the facility.
