Who says we can’t have a little fun and relaxation while we learn? One of the most popular regular events at the Mayborn School is “Mayborn Goes to the Movies,” an ongoing festival that features some of the great movies relating to Journalism, along with discussion from the area’s top media writers and journalism ethics experts.
Sponsored by the Mayborn’s Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) chapter, this event – held once each semester – helps give students a broader societal perspective on great moments (and challenging ones, too) in journalism from a higher point of view.
Oh, and there’s always popcorn, soft drinks and fantastic discussion. Along with studies and involvement with groups and organizations, Mayborn Goes to the Movies is one of the highlights of being a student at the Mayborn School.
