Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism students enjoy scholastic success and support while living alongside future members of the press in this academic community.  All students in this community are required to enroll in JOUR 1210: Mass Communication and Society* during fall 2017.

Engagement opportunities include:

  • Participating in study groups related to common courses taken together within the first year
  • Exploring careers in various journalistic paths
  • Attending field trips in the DFW area; previous field trips have included NBC5, the Dallas Morning News, the Star-Telegram, and the Denton Record-Chronicle. 

The Journalism Living Learning Community is housed in Kerr Hall for the 2017 – 2018 academic year.

*Students who already have credit for this course will be advised on the exception process at Freshman Orientation.
