Rethinking the College Campus

At Arizona State University, journalism students have use of a professional-quality newsroom, studios, digital editing bays. The facilities are described by ASU as “closer to more major metropolitan news operations than any journalism school in the country.” As someone who studied journalism decades ago in a windowless basement in one of my university's oldest buildings, I'm rabidly jealous. But it is a great example of how universities around the country are shifting their thinking around the learning environment to a more "purpose-driven learning" approach. It makes sense. Not only is it cool to sample the professional space as a student, it also helps students prepare for what it will feel like in the "real world."
