As an alumnus of Angelo State, just a little more than an hour to the south of Abilene Christian University, I find it very hard to say nice things about our rivals to the north. But today, I have no choice. ACU’s Student Media News Lab looks like they are well under way to being a college that “gets it” when it comes to multimedia-multifunction journalism. It is not just about having all the cool toys, but that is a great start – you must also have a commitment to both quality journalism and multimedia coverage. ACU’s new newsroom looks like they have a great new beginning for a program that has been around for a while. It is great to see them offer up a quality journalism major at a smaller Texas university. Too bad some of our public universities are slashing the quality of journalism instruction at the same time.
