Forging Different Paths
While many UF CJC students who have walked the halls of Building K, the Stadium and Weimer Hall chose more traditional media professions, some have taken different career paths such as law, government and public policy. Some (gasp!) have even soundly debunked the theory that journalists can’t do math and are leaders in internationally known finance and insurance companies.
40 Years of Winners
Each spring, the College honors graduating seniors at an awards banquet. The highlight of each evening is the Weimer Award, named after Rae O. Weimer, the founding director and first dean of the College, and his first wife, Ruth, which goes to the top graduate in the College. The award was established in 1974 when Rae Weimer presented the inaugural award to Randy Bellows, JOU 1974.
One of the areas of UF CJC most often cited among the academic community and professionals alike is the outstanding immersion opportunities the College has offered its students over the years: WRUF-AM & FM, WUFT-FM & TV, Alpha Productions, Ad Society’s Adwerks, the Innovation News Center and more. This fall, the College makes a new and exciting addition to that list: The Agency.
