The audience's role in theatre


Students and community members visit the Wells-Metz Theatre to enjoy “Sense and Sensibility.”

Jonathan Michaelson, Chair of the Department of Theatre, Drama, and Dance at Indiana University, dedicates his time to the theatre.

Robbie Stanton, a costume designer for Indiana University, explains his part in bringing the show to the audience.

Jenny McNight and Grant Goodman, hired equity actors, are performing in “Sense and Sensibility” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

“If we work well together, we’re better,” Jonathan Michaelson, the chairman of Indiana University’s Theatre Department said. The truth of this statement resonates, not just with thespians, but also with audience members.

“We come to a lot of the plays,” said Connie Hegarty, an audience member. Connie Hegarty and her husband Harv Hegarty have been on multiple theater boards and Connie Hegarty spent her childhood going to the theater.

“It’s live entertainment,” said Harv Hegarty, showing …

What We Got Out of the Shadows


This morning, the HSJI PR team had the opportunity to shadow a pro in the field of Public Relations.


When old meets new


I am new to Indiana.

As a kid grew up in Shanghai, China and moved to Los Angeles in 9th grade. Indiana feels different.

This place has beautiful sky, large green trees and endless grasslands. But the road is small and narrow, the shopping mall isn’t ideal.

I came to IU campus, and I changed my mind. First, I met the cutest squirrels.

Indiana University is mixed with ancient architectures and new buildings, huge trees and saplings. The school has experienced seniors who master everything and incoming freshmen who know almost nothing about IU.

The media school is moving into the newly renovated Franklin Hall from Ernie Pyle Hall.

Saplings stand beside towering trees.

There is Global and International Studies Building completed in 2015 and Maxwell Hall built in 1891.

There is new Spruce Hall and Bryan Hall with rusted …

Break-out session: Branding and Corporate Image


Greg Mosley, is giving students a session about branding and corporate image.

On July 13, Greg Mosley gave a session about branding and corporate image. He said, ” Building a brand is different from marketing.”

Branding is the expression of the essential truth or value of an organization, product, or service. But marketing is actively promoting a product or service. It is a tool for pushing consumers.

Mosley used selling tomatoes as an example of branding. Mosley says,” There are different people selling tomatoes at a farmer’s market. The smart guy at the end cuts up his best tomatoes into pieces. And he goes, ‘Try my tomatoes.’ He also brings his homemade spaghetti sauce, and puts them in sample cups. You taste it and say, ‘this is the most delicious tomato I’ve ever had!’ Then he says, ‘I know right! Would you like my …

A few new wrinkles in 70 years of HSJI


The High School Journalism Institute has survived a long time. Find out what has changed in 70 years and what never will.


Farewell to Ernie Pyle Hall


As many may know, the Media School will begin moving into Franklin Hall, July 25. Since 1954, the journalism department at IU has been stationed in Ernie Pyle Hall. This building, named after the famous journalist Ernie Pyle himself, holds a special meaning to IU students, faculty, and alumni. HSJI students (this week and next week) will be the last group of journalists to be taught in Ernie Pyle Hall.

After next week, Ernie Pyle Hall will no longer be used to teach up-and-coming journalists.

In the Yearbook class, instructor Jeff Gabbard (and Janet McKinney who is not pictured) discussed the themes of yearbooks and what makes a good and bad yearbook with their students.

To “warm up” before the first session of the day, Web Packaging instuctor Denise Roberts led the class in some goofy stretches.

Many of the old classrooms that are not …
