Cheers to 100 Years: A Celebration of Students Delivering the News

The Southern Miss School of Communication is pleased to announce details on our upcoming 100 year celebration of the student newspaper. The 2018 Mass Communication and Journalism Symposium is dedicated to those who served in some way on the student newspaper during their time at Southern Miss, and who have used their careers to serve their communities and others. “Cheers to 100 Years! A Celebration of the Student Newspaper” will be held on the Hattiesburg campus Thursday, October 18, 2018.

The celebration highlights the long time success of the student newspaper and the profound effect it has had on Southern Miss and the Hattiesburg community through the years. The event will include a ticketed luncheon at which three extraordinary journalists will be inducted into the Southern Miss MCJ Hall of Fame at noon. The 2018 class of inductees are listed below with a link to their biography for viewing. A panel discussion open to all students, faculty and guests will follow at 1:30 pm in 218 of the Thad Cochran Center, and College Hall will be open for tours beginning at 3 pm. The day will conclude with an opening reception for the Cheers to 100 Years: A Celebration of Students Delivering the News exhibit in the Joseph Cook Library Art Gallery where bound editions of the Student Printz will be available to view along with other student newspaper memorabilia.

Tickets for the luncheon are $35, and can be purchased online below or by contacting Mandy Nace at 601.266.4258 or amanda.tilley@usm.edu. We hope that you’ll be able to join us this at monumental celebration and help us walk down memory lane.
