School of Communication & Media

The new School of Communication and Media building will be a 105,000-square-foot facility that will join together what is now Morehead Hall and Life Hall into a single, multi-functional communications and multimedia facility.

The new building will be equipped with a leading-edge, multi-platform “newsroom of the future,” along with a 150-seat presentation hall, broadcast studios, integrated media lab, film screening room, and acting and dance studios.

The new arts and sciences quad will be completed in phases and will feature a center pathway lined with larger trees and bordered by lawn areas, ornamental trees and plantings, benches and seating areas, and new lighting, among the many planned improvements.
