Last year, the College of Mass Communications was relocated to the old Rawls College of Business Administration building when Business Administration moved into a brand new building. Dr. Hudson said the college has simply run out of space in the old Mass Comm building, which was originally built back in 1974. When the opportunity arose for the college to move to the old BA building, Dr. Hudson was admittedly reluctant, but overall was very pleased with the end result. The old Mass Communications building has been converted to an Engineering building and is now part of the Engineering key.

Dr. Chambers added that the Mass Communications field as a whole has also seen incredible changes since the building’s construction. He said that it was very important for students of Mass Comm to be able to wear multiple “hats” and to work in all areas of the industry, from in of the camera, to behind the camera, to the sales and marketing end.

Chambers: “Students have so much opportunity now and things have changed so much. I look at just what we’re trying to do and what we’re trying to teach our students now is that they all need to graduate with their own media brand…it doesn’t matter what major they are, advertising, public relations, journalism, electronic media or media strategies, they all have to be able to come out and wear multiple hats.”
