This year marks the 40th anniversary of CSUB's student newpaper, the Runner. We are celebrating by hosting a Runner Reunion in the old Performing Arts building to unveil our plans for a new Creative Arts and Student Media Center.
With the opening of the new Visual Arts building in Fall 2014 we have the opportunity to use the existing space for a creative arts incubator and student media center.
Sharing this space will encourage Art and Communications students to collaborate on ventures using new media and old. In addition to giving a new home to the Runner newspaper, the new center would include spaces for a brand new student-run radio station, a public relations office, a closed-circuit television station, a digital arts lab, and a library-lounge. These new, renovated spaces would give students real-world training in creative arts and media careers right on campus.
Our vision is to see various campus groups take advantage of the center's resources. For example:
Dr. Robert Frakes
Dean of the School of Arts & Humanities
