On Friday, April 26, a “Farewell to Scripps Hall” will be held to join students, faculty and alumni in saying goodbye to what has been the home of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism for 27 years.
From 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Scripps Hall will be open to all journalism students and faculty members wishing to commemorate their time in the building. The event will feature slideshow presentations of Scripps Hall's history, a video tribute to the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism's Class of 2013 and the unique opportunity to be a part of a historical event.
Attendees will also be able to make their mark in the journalism school's history by signing "A Piece of Scripps Hall in Schoonover." The panoramic poster print of Scripps Hall will travel to the new home of both the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism and the Scripps College of Communication: the Schoonover Center.
The Schoonover Center for Communication is a new integrated facility for the Scripps College of Communication that is currently being constructed on the former Baker Center site across from College Green.
Although classes will not begin in Schoonover Center until Fall 2014, all offices for journalism faculty will be moving in Fall 2013. Beginning next school year, Scripps Hall will house classes outside of the journalism curriculum such as business and marketing courses.
