Student Media hosted an Open House at Cinefest Theater on the Atlanta campus on Friday, September 9, 2022, with over 80 students in attendance. The program was also available for live viewing on YouTube and the recording can be viewed on Student Engagement's YouTube Channel here.
Student Media at Georgia State University has historically included five organizations: Album 88 radio station, The Signal newspaper, Underground undergraduate literary journal, and two currently inactive groups Neo Network (NeoN) video production services group and New South graduate literary journal. These groups have provided Georgia State students with opportunities in audio, video, print journalism and literature that have led to professional careers in regional and national media outlets.
Tre’Vaughn Williams, general manager for Album 88 radio station, and Adam Duffy, Editor-In-Chief for The Signal newspaper, answered questions about their media groups and how to apply for upcoming positions. Paula Valero, Editor-In-Chief for Underground, the undergraduate creative literary journal, is also seeking applicants but was not present for the program. Student media heads for Neo Network (NeoN) and New South have not been selected for the year yet.
