The College of Media at Illinois invites admitted students to attend this open house event designed for high school students interested in studying Advertising, Agricultural Communications, Journalism, and Media and Cinema Studies atthe University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Mediapalooza gives high school seniors who have been admitted to the College of Media for the coming fall term an insider's look at what it means to be a Media student!
Students will get a chance to hear from and talk with the College dean, department heads, and professors about the academic rigor of the programs. Attendees will also chat with internship coordinators and advisers to learn about courses, career advising, and student organizations. And, of course, current Media students will be on hand to describe opportunities at Illinois and answer questions. A morning session will allow students in each major the opportunity to participate in a group project that would be similar to the type of work they might complete while an undergrad at Illinois.
