Previewing our freshman class

Welcome, Freshmen!

Welcome to the School of Journalism and Mass Communication (JMC) at Kent State University. We're looking forward to your arrival this fall.

In fact, we're spending the summer preparing for you. Our advisors -- Amy, Samantha and Aimee -- have been working to get you started off right … from day one. Your advisor will be with you throughout your entire JMC experience.

JMC is an active place. It's also a terrific community, where students, faculty and staff learn, work and create together. You'll be part of that community … from day one. I encourage you to get involved with our great student organizations and Student Media — our TV station, radio station, newspaper, magazines and mobile apps … from day one.

So enjoy the rest of the summer. Check out this video to learn more about JMC.

See you soon,


Thor Wasbotten
