A "Communications Day" for High Schools.
Stephenson, Alan R.
A "Communications Day" event aimed at area high school juniors and seniors was developed at John Carroll University, near Cleveland, Ohio. Flourishing since its beginning in 1978, the day-long seminar is intended to give students the opportunity to hear from and question experts in all phases of radio, television, and newspaper work. A typical Communications Day (with attendance of up to 1,400 students) is broken into three sessions or blocks plus lunch, usually with six simultaneous sessions offered in each block. It involves careful planning and sincere cooperation between the university's Communications Department and local commercial media companies (consisting of Cleveland's major daily newspaper, and a major local television station and radio station), who recognize its potential and who benefit from the association. The university, in turn, is able to acquaint a large number of area students with the campus and its programs. (SR)
