Great news: A&M associate liberal arts dean Pamela Matthews will be speaking to us again this year at the Fall Reception, 4 p.m. Sept. 5 in Cain Hall, room B111. She's been of great help to this blog in getting journalism news out to you folks, and last year she gave us an excellent and newsy update on the state of journalism education at A&M.
It's been a busy year in journalism at A&M, and this is a pivotal time. We've gained a new head of our journalism program; the university leadership is in flux and so, of course, is journalism as an industry and an educational field. Come and make it known that you care; meet our officers; do some networking.
We'll also elect new officers and induct arts critic Welton Jones II '58 into our Hall of Honor. Cain Hall is right by Kyle Field (here's a map), so you'll be well-placed for the 6 p.m. game against New Mexico. Park on Northgate, grab a bite amid the astonishing array of restaurants that has sprouted there, and stroll in leisurely style.
