Kent State’s Franklin Hall is a great place to talk Scholastic Journalism

Kent State University’s Franklin Hall is hosting the Center for Scholastic Journalism Board Meeting today.

KENT, Ohio– Today is my second time visiting the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Kent State University and the place has been as great as the people gathered to talk about scholastic journalism.

Members of the Center for Scholastic Journalism Advisory Board arrive at Franklin Hall for today's meeting.

The last time I was here, I attended a ethics symposium in First Energy lecture hall.

The classroom space throughout the recently renovated Franklin Hall is great.

You can see the Convergence Lab on the second level of Franklin Hall from the entrance to the building.

I’ve already had a chance to check out the business offices of The Daily Kent Stater.

Today we’re in the Hirsch Convergence Laboratory, which has the modular furniture that could be used to convert this teaching space into a board room.
