The CMIR is an amazing resource on the campus of the University of Florida for those interested in tomorrow’s journalism and communication forms. This is a place where public relations, advertising, and public interest combine to develop. The CMIR can be found in AHA! The Innovation CoLab.
This is a facility which opened for students and faculty explore emerging technology with a space which spans for 1,200 square foot production studio for students to use their skills of digital technology and developing campaigns. This is such an amazing resource to be accessible to, especially as a student at The University of Florida who is pursuing a career in something involving public relations or something involving the digital media.
With this said life as a journalism student at UF has been a blessing because of all of the many resources and professional help I am privy to at this institution. With an on-campus newsroom like WUFT to the AHA! Innovation lab, there is an endless number of things that I can get involved in to further develop my digital media, public relations, and communication skills.
Being in the College of Communications and Journalism has provided me with the tools and knowledge that far surpass anything I’d be able to accomplish in my short two years here along with the confidence in knowing that I have more experience than the average telecommunications/journalism major coming out of college. The courses are challenging, but very useful especially because it is helping me better prepare for my future endeavors.
This experience has definitely been one of a kind I am so grateful to have been able to take advantage of all that the University of Florida has to offer!!
