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.

During phase one of Ohio University’s reopening, the once bustling hallways are still mostly vacant, with the occasional student and faculty making way to an office or study area. As the University remained mostly closed for August and September, classes were held online, posing new challenges for both students and professors. Many of media classes are lab based, requiring demo’s and equipment only accessible in Schoonover. Access to high speed internet also creates connectivity issues. Some of these problems will hopefully be remedied during the partial reopening in phase two; yet, the responsible management of the student body during a pandemic remains a priority.

Such a well-deserved honor for this beautiful work.

Haiyun Jiang was one of five recipients of a Getty Images inaugural Inclusion Scholarship. According to @gettyimages, these scholarships support "emerging editorial talent within minority groups, offering aspiring photojournalists the creative means and solutions to pursue education that will enable careers within the industry."
.
"I am always curious about human living conditions in the context of geographic and socioeconomic changes," says Haiyun, currently an MFA student in the Communication Media Arts program at OHIO. "By exploring this relation, I am able to understand and empathize with lives that are drastically different from mine. I have chosen climate change as my contexture area and will concentrate on climate refugees, to gain an in-depth knowledge of the science, challenges, and adaptations on this issue. As a photojournalist, I am highly aware that the camera has tremendous power in shaping narratives and visual presentations. It is a privilege to be trusted with people's stories. Going forward, I will continue pursuing photographic storytelling with integrity, honesty, and empathy."

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/
