College welcomes new students at Fall Convocation

On Saturday, August 15, the Class of 2013 moved in.  On Sunday, the freshmen got to rest.  Briefly.  

Freshmen and their parents filled the pews of Rutledge Chapel on the Horseshoe for the college’s New Student Convocation on Sunday, August 16.   There they heard the experiences of students who had gone before them in both our School of Journalism and Mass Communications and School of Library and Information Science.  The dean and school directors welcomed the new class.  (All are captured on the video on this page.)

The freshman class is our best and brightest.  We say that every year, and we mean it.  The new students enter at a challenging, but dynamic time for all our disciplines as the processes of information gathering and communication are transformed by the digital age.  

All of the college’s programs show growth this year, in spite of the global economic uncertainty.  Undergraduate and graduate enrollments have increased.  Our nascent undergraduate degree in information science has reached double digit enrollment.  Small, but growing.  Journalism school enrollment is once again nearing 1400 undergraduates.  Both schools added new doctoral cohorts.
