Student Groups

The School of Journalism and Mass Media takes pride in helping students succeed inside and outside the classroom. Faculty members encourage students to get involved in Student Media and student clubs. These co-curricular activities give students a chance to apply classroom concepts to real-life situations. They also nurture connections with alumni and regional media professionals through guest speakers, field trips and conferences. Two of the student groups, SPJ and Ad Club, are affiliated with national organizations, the Society of Professional Journalists and the American Advertising Federation, respectively.

Open to all majors, Ad Club is affiliated with the American Advertising Federation (AAF). This club works with local businesses to provide full-service advertising services: research, creative, planning and placement. Proceeds support club activities such as field trips. Members pay a one-time fee of $65 to AAF and must attend 80 percent of meetings.

Faculty advisor: Mark Secrist

Open to all majors. Students interested in television, movies, the Internet, production, commercials, documentaries, audio, video, Web design, animation and graphics are encouraged to join.

Faculty advisor: Denise Bennett

The Society of Professional Journalists is the nation’s largest and most broad-based journalism organization. It encourages the free practice of journalism and stimulates high standards of ethical behavior. The UI chapter works to uphold these standards. Members will meet potential employers, learn about jobs and internships, hear journalists speak about current issues, attend conferences and apply for awards.

Faculty advisors: Becky Tallent and Steve Smith

Members invite regional public relations and public information professionals to meet with the club to talk about the opportunities in the field today. The club also participates in job-shadow opportunities and assists with public relations activities of local nonprofit organizations.
