SJMC Relays Reunion

The School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC) is celebrating its delayed centennial event: 100+2 years of communication education at Drake! The celebration will culminate in an alumni reception during Drake Relays weekend 2022 on Saturday, April 30, from 5-8 p.m. in Meredith Hall. We will be honoring SJMC faculty and staff past and present, and wishing Dean Kathleen Richardson bon voyage as she heads into retirement after more than two decades at Drake. Get your classmates together and return to campus for a fun-filled evening. Plus toast our iconic building before it is closed for renovation for a year!
