The Society of Professional Journalists Angelo State Chapter will be hosting a ‘Media Meet and Greet’ at the LeGrand Alumni Center on Thursday, Jan. 24, from 6:30 - 8 p.m.
The event is tailored towards Mass Media and Communication majors and minors, but open to all students, president senior Victoria Lacy said.
SPJ is a national organization. This is their first event of the school year.
“The purpose of the Meet and Greet is to facilitate communication between media students here on campus and local media professionals,” Lacy said. “We are hoping to promote SPJ as an organization on campus and maybe grasp a couple new members.”
This is a business casual event, she said.
Representatives from local media groups such as Standard Times and KSAN/KLST have been invited for students, vice president senior Cheyenne Benson said.
“It’s a great opportunity for students to get to know the media and informally learn about the industry. We figured this would benefit Mass Media and Communication students the most.”
This come and go event is free and refreshments will be served.
