http://twitter.com/scrippsou The Ohio University Scripps College of Communication is a leader in communication education—and it is the pride of Ohio University. Generally regarded as one of the top five programs in the nation, Scripps prepares students to be effective and responsible communicators in a global society and advances the field through creative activity and research on communication concepts, issues and problems. Since its founding 40 years ago, Scripps has grown from just two schools – communication and journalism – to five schools offering more than 40 nationally acclaimed programs. These range from the very technical in the J. Warren McClure School of Information and Telecommunication Systems to the deeply theoretical in the School of Communication Studies – and everything in between in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, and the Schools of Media Arts and Studies and Visual Communication. In May 2006, the University received a commitment of $15 million from the Scripps Howard Foundation and the college was named in its honor. Scripps also houses the WOUB Public Media, which operates five public radio stations, two public television stations and one cable television station serving more than 60 counties. Through the center’s Student Development Program, more than 250 of the college’s students gain hands-on radio and television experience by assisting with the stations’ day-to-day operations. Scripps has been recognized as “one of Ohio University’s most distinguished programs” by the Guide to 101 of the Best Values in America’s Colleges and Universities. In the fall of 2010, Scripps was named a Center of Excellence in the state of Ohio. Scripps alumni number 26,000 worldwide and are some of the most recognizable names, successful leaders and notable contributors in the field of communication.

Another Scripps College Ambassador spotlight! ✨ Let’s hear a bit from Emily, a senior majoring in Journalism with a psychology minor!

My name is Emily Gayton and I'm originally from Olean, New York. I chose to come all the way to Southeast Ohio for school because the journalism program here is awesome and I felt right at hOUme.

Since being here, I've interned in Los Angeles, went on the screenwriting and documentary filmmaking trip in Ireland, and participated in the Scripps in DC program. I have also taken active member and leadership roles in Student Alumni Board and BobcaThon.

I've had so much opportunity here and I'm going to miss it when I graduate in May. That's why I'm soaking up the time I have left and hitting the books here in Athens at my off campus apartment.

How has politics become entertainment on social media platforms and how does social media activism boost or diminish campaigns?

Whether it's Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even TikTok, politics has become a prevalent and constant topic of discussion on social media platforms, and in many cases, a form of entertainment for the masses. Dr. Kevin Mattson and Dr. Karen Riggs discuss the phenomenon of politics as entertainment and how social media can both boost and diminish political campaigns. Post your questions in the comments and they'll answer during the live broadcast.

Mattson is an expert in crisis situations and the presidency, elections and Presidents Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon. He focuses on the intersections between ideas and politics in 20th Century America and examines previous presidents.

Riggs is an expert in content curation, social media, media arts and fake news. Her focus lies in understanding the cultural transformation that social media has spurred and analyzes how older people in the workplace deal with technology challenges.

Hey there, Bobcats! I've been writing for Heavy.com for almost two years, and the company is looking to hire new contributing reporters. It's a freelance gig, but one that has the possibility of being long-term if you like it and perform well. Feel free to reach out to me with questions: [email protected]
Those of us old-timers remember Professor Norman H. Dohn, who was nearing the end of his career when I was a journalism student at OU (1979-1983). He told the story about the landing at Normandy, but with a different take: The first transport boats opened their "gates" in water that was too deep. The soldiers could not touch the bottom. With their heavy packs filling with water, they became top heavy and many soldiers drowned before ever reaching the beach. I remember he used the term, "bobbing like corks." Subsequent boats pulled closer to shore, and those soldiers were almost immediately killed by gunfire. I do not believe he was there that day, but he was in the Army, and I am certain that his story was someone's first-hand account. He believed that we, as journalists, were truly recording history. I will never forget him.
What a fantastic way to spend a Saturday! Ohio spelling superstars from all over our region showed us all how it’s done. Congratulations to our Champions, but everyone was a winner. 😁
Congrats on being named one of the best schools for aspiring editors! https://www.collegemagazine.com/top-10-colleges-for-aspiring-editors/
