The new building of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina opened Wednesday.
College of Information and Communications Dean, Charles Bierbauer, said the new facility is state of the art. “It’s a fabulous building. It’s crammed with technology,” Bierbauer said at the ribbon cutting Wednesday.
Student, Caroline Cann, said the new facility goes beyond bricks and mortar. ”I think and bet my classmates would agree, that this building is more than just fancy equipment and new classrooms. It’s proof that we have a school who believes in us,” Cann said.
University president, Harris Pastides, said the new facility will serve those who use it well. “We have fifty-six faculty members inside this building. Over 2000 undergraduate and graduate students,” Pastides said.
The USC School of Journalism and Mass Communications was established in 1923.
