Admitted Student Open House
Friday, April 19th and Saturday, April 20th. If you are unable to attend the admitted student open house, we are streaming the event live on our website. For those unable to watch the open house live, it will be archived online.
This year we have a very special closing event on Saturday, April 20th. We hope you can join us for our inaugural episode of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism’s new podcast, Where I’m From. Storytelling, music, humor, reporting, and journalism collide in this live onstage cultural exchange. It’s A Prarie Home Companion for and from NYC’s diverse neighborhoods! There will be a cash bar, first drink on us, and some complimentary “Food Truck” refreshments. The event will take place immediately after open house on Saturday, April 20th from 5-7 p.m. in Manhattan-location TBD.
Join the Class of 2014 Facebook Group
We invite you to join the Class of 2014 Facebook Group we have created to provide another opportunity for information exchange among admitted candidates for Class of 2014 and J-School alums, students and faculty. The Facebook group will help serve as a resource to continue gathering information and insights about the opportunities the program may offer you in your educational and career pursuits.
The Class of 2014 Facebook Group is closed, which means anyone can see the group and its members, but only members can post and see posts, and comment on updates, chat with everyone at once, schedule group events, create shared docs, and more. Members no longer interested in the Group may always leave the Group at any time.
Visit the CUNY J-school
If you are unable to attend the admitted student open house, but would like to visit the campus. Please contact the Office of Admissions to schedule a visit to the school. You may check out the class schedule online, if you would like to attend a class while you’re in town. You may also view our faculty bios on our website if you would like to schedule an appointment to chat with faculty.
Attend Upcoming Events
We create a listserv for the Class of 2014 to communicate with each other over the summer. Students utilize this resource to discuss housing, insight into NYC neighborhoods, and to learn more about the students in their class prior to August. Below are two housing options for CUNY J-school students.
