The Tower will glow orange with “100” lit up on the shaft on Oct. 16 to commemorate the School of Journalism‘s centennial year.
Since its founding in 1914, the School of Journalism has trained more than 12,000 journalists in top-ranked undergraduate and graduate programs, and was selected as one of 12 journalism schools to participate in the Carnegie-Knight Initiative on the Future of Journalism Education.
In 2012, the School introduced a new digital-based undergraduate curriculum and moved into the state-of-the-art, 120,000-square-foot Belo Center for New Media.
The school counts many renowned journalists and national leaders among its alumni, including Walter Cronkite, Lady Bird Johnson, Liz Carpenter, Bill Moyers and Admiral William McRaven, as well as multiple Pulitzer Prize winners.
Visit the school’s Centennial Celebration website to learn about events related to the anniversary, new student learning initiatives, award-winning faculty and alumni, and to see a timeline of the school’s history.
