It’s a big day! More than 150 students are graduating from CU Journalism & Mass Communication on Thursday, May 9, 2014. Our students are finishing their time at CU ready for successful careers in multimedia, broadcast and print journalism, in advertising, or almost any other career you can imagine. They’ll follow in the footsteps of successful alumni across the world and, we hope, they’ll take their Buff pride with them wherever they go. Our graduation speaker is NPR national reporter Kirk Siegler (Jour ’00). Siegler joined the network in 2012. Since then he has covered everything from a dock worker strike at the nation's largest port to the Newtown, Connecticut school shootings and, most recently, California’s devastating drought.
