On Thursday morning, Charlie Tuggle, senior associate dean for undergraduate studies at the Hussman School of Journalism and Media, walked past floor-to-ceiling windows and a giant broadcast screen.

“If you can imagine it, we can do it,” he said.

Tuggle stood inside the Curtis Media Center – the newest expansion of the journalism school, which had planned to be open for a full course schedule during the fall semester.

Construction of the building was announced in late 2018 when the Curtis Foundation committed $10 million for the journalism school, eight million of which would be used for the new center.

And on Thursday, more than a year after its scheduled opening in January 2021, the Curtis Media Center had its official grand opening.

Tuggle said the center is complete with a broadcast studio, control room, seminar meeting spaces, multiple classrooms and a MakerSpace.

“It opens up a lot of possibilities for the whole school of media and journalism,” he said.

Tuggle added that the building will effectively serve as a central broadcast hub.

Visiting students and faculty can watch sports games, coaching conferences, or live broadcasts of performances in Memorial Hall via the broadcast screen visible outside the building. This feature is useful, he said, because of the center’s location between Franklin Street and Central Campus, and its access to other academic spaces.

“We relate to everyone,” Tuggle said. “We are connected to the arts. We are related to athletics. We now have camera locations on campus.”

The center is also equipped with a unique audio system, called virtual microphone technology, which transmits sound so teachers don’t have to be on the mic while teaching. Its roof is fitted with solar panels, which Tuggle says will produce enough electricity to offset the building’s use.

“Everything we envisioned is part of what we have, and now we are thinking about the future,” he said. “We can’t stand still when it comes to technology because it changes every two months. So we built a building that would fit.

An example of this adaptability are the center’s classrooms. The large classrooms on the second and third floors have dividing walls in the center, which can be removed to accommodate 50 students or used to divide the room in two for smaller classes.

Gary Kayye, professor of advertising and public relations at the School of Journalism, said the classrooms at the Curtis Media Center are true HyFlex classrooms.

Professors can use instructor reference monitors to see students on Zoom as if they were an extension of the classroom, he said.

“So what’s cool about it is that if the students miss class, they’ll feel more included in the class because they’re having a two-way experience, and the teacher can actually see them.”

UNC junior Cassia Sari said she was thrilled to see the Curtis Center nearing completion.

“It’s amazing,” Sari said. “We have state-of-the-art technology, great anchor seats. I mean, there are no complaints.

A political science and journalism major with a concentration in broadcasting, Sari works on the Carolina Week broadcast program.

She said the hub will make it easier for broadcasters to cover different events, such as basketball games and Memorial Hall performances.

“We have everything here,” Sari said. “And I think that’s going to save us a lot of time, a lot of energy, and it’s just going to elevate our show to a level that it just hasn’t reached.”

On Thursday, Sari was able to explore the centre’s new broadcast studio and other features she will be able to use next year.

“I never thought we would have this amazing space,” Sari said. “Not at all.”

The UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media and Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz officially opened Carolina’s newest building — the Curtis Media Center — Thursday night.

Located next to Carroll Hall at the campus entrance facing Cameron Avenue, the nearly 13,000-square-foot, three-story building includes a high-tech broadcast studio, podcast studio, creative space and four state-of-the-art classrooms. The Curtis Media Center will host classes this summer.

“Take a moment and imagine with me what will happen in this space: the real magic of discovery, creativity and training the next generation of journalists. It will be a special place; and it is an honor to dedicate it today,” Guskiewicz said during the ceremony held in one of the classrooms.

Don Curtis ’63—an alumnus and former UNC board member—and the visionary gift of his family foundation made the building a reality. The $10 million gift from the Curtis family is the second-largest gift in school history. The gift funded the construction of the building, while expanding the powerful student learning experiences funded by the Don and Barbara Curtis Excellence Fund for Extracurricular Activities.

Referencing his love for Disney World, Curtis said Carolina is a place for “dreamers and believers,” just like he was when he was a student here for 60 years, and he hopes the Curtis Media Center will help continue this tradition.

“I dream that this building provides a place where dreamers and believers can come to learn for years to come and hopefully prepare for a future that will make North Carolina better,” Curtis said.

With innovations and hands-on learning experiences for Tar Heels from basement to rooftop, the new facility, said UNC Hussman Dean Emeritus Susan King, is a transformative place for everyone.

“It’s something that will serve students for decades and decades, and there will be hundreds and hundreds of students who can come here in a totally different way,” King said.

A 3,000 square foot manufacturing space on the lower level will provide space for FashionMash, a branding-focused UNC Hussman program for the fashion and lifestyle industry.

The first-floor broadcast studio will serve as a learning space for the school’s broadcast students. In addition to a 16ft x 9ft high-definition LED screen, green screen and production space, the studio will also have a direct connection to UNC Athletics facilities and can be used as a studio. briefing to Carolina faculty members to share their expertise on TV shows. A podcast studio on the second floor will provide all the tools students need to bring their audio projects to life.

Two floors of classrooms will create active learning experiences for students. Each room is designed with virtual microphones, cameras, high definition projection screens and display monitors.

The roof features a photovoltaic solar panel that will reduce the building’s energy requirements by 25% or more. Sunny days will return electricity to the University grid. The equipment was funded by the Renewable Energy Special Projects Committeea student-led committee that plans and implements renewable energy and energy efficiency projects on campus.

Special: 2022 Winter Olympics

The Main Media Center (MMC) for Beijing 2022, which left fond memories for Chinese and foreign journalists, entered its post-Games transformation on Thursday and is expected to be completed in 2024.

Some landscape panels of the Winter Olympics at the venue will be retained, and the “Beginning of Spring” hall, which held major press conferences during the Games, will be retained as a permanent installation.

Chi Mingzhi, project manager at Beijing Construction Engineering Group, said the MMC, which occupied nearly half of China National Convention Center Phase II, had fully considered post-Games use.

Venue transformation also includes a plan to create intelligent venue systems, using advanced technologies such as cloud computing and the Internet of Things to improve service management and efficiency.

In the future, the building will be integrated with China National Convention Center Phase I to form a super-large exhibition complex of about 1.3 million square meters, accommodating various business and top trade exhibition activities. of range.

The Writing and Media Center will host its first Poetry Night and invites all members of the Ames community and the State of Iowa to attend.

The event will take place at the Memorial Union Maintenance Shop from 7-9 p.m. on March 10 and promises to be an open space where everyone can share their poetry and prose. There will be light desserts and hot chocolate for participants.

Originally intended to be exclusively for staff of the Writing and Media Center, Poetry Night is a free entry event, the first of its kind. Regardless of their previous experience, any student or staff member can register before the event and share their original work. If a participant wishes to share a piece by an author of their choice, Poetry Night also offers this possibility.

Alexa Gormley, a senior graduate and one of the leaders of Poetry Night, said: “It will be a safe and welcoming space because many of the events that take place at Ames are hosted by real poetry groups, and these can be intimidating. It will be a space for everyone and especially for beginners.

Gormley also encourages students to not be afraid to read and to take this opportunity to get involved in the poetry space. If participants are hesitant to read in public, there is still much to learn from just listening.

The Memorial Union is known for hosting open-mic events; however, there has never been an event devoted exclusively to poetry. The goal of the Writing and Media Center is to create a space where students can be excited about writing in this medium and not be intimidated by other artistic aspects that are typically presented in an open-mic event. .

Additionally, other members of poetry groups WMC and Ames are expected to attend “Poetry Night.” This opens up the possibility of a more engaging evening where students can get feedback on some of their original work.

“Our goal is to make it an annual or semi-annual event depending on how that first event goes, but we’re really excited about it,” says Gormley. The Maintenance Workshop will bring a different feel and hopefully improve the overall experience.

For anyone interested in attending the WMC, please share a sample video of the 2014 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational it gives an idea of ​​what a poetic event can look like.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Despite rain on Friday, the course was still packed with nearly all of the best golfers in the world competing in THE PLAYERS Championship.

STORY: First weather alert: flood watch until Saturday morning, frost watch inland Saturday evening

Last week, Action News Jax took a tour inside the PGA TOUR headquarters at Ponte Vedra Beach.

It’s a 187,000 square foot space for over 750 employees and there’s room to hire several hundred more.

The new world home of the PGA TOUR was a dream in the making for seven years before opening its doors in 2021.

STORY: Jacksonville gas station drops price from $5.99 to $4.49 a gallon after Action News Jax calls owner

Allison Keller, the PGA TOUR Executive Director, showed me around their new headquarters.

“We have a chef who makes fresh food from the stations, including flatbread dishes, fresh salads and other really cool gourmet dishes,” Keller said.

It’s clear to see why these employees don’t want to work from home.

There’s a cafe and smoothie bar and places to sit and relax, plus a 24/7 gym to get your heart pumping.

“We encourage our employees to come and train even in the middle of the day, even at odd hours to get that refreshment again, that energy to do what we have to do,” Keller said.

His economic impact in the region, combined with THE PLAYERS Championship, has generated over $1 billion and will only grow.

“In fact, we are designing a multimedia installation. A media production facility that will open in 2024 and will have an additional annual impact of $112 million, so it will be another 165,000 square foot building packed with technology and broadcast equipment for digital streams and satellite channels. It’s really a testament to the growth we’ve seen in this area,” Keller said.

Keller said THE PLAYERS Championship has been a standout event at Ponte Vedra Beach for 40 years and if you work here you can watch the championship right in your backyard.

“We’re just steps through those trees from the roar of the 17th Island Green, which is one of the most famous golf holes on the planet and our employees love it,” Keller said.
