SMC celebrates News Engagement Day

Lauren Saizan

Students will have a chance to participate in News Engagement Day on Tuesday, Oct. 6, a day dedicated to enlightenment through the media.

News Engagement Day was launched in 2014 with the intention of creating a more informed society. The day focuses on spreading awareness on the importance of education that news provides and empowerment in knowing what is going on in the world.

Representatives from the School of Mass Communication will be in the Peace Quad from 12 to 2 p.m. on News Engagement Day encouraging students to download a news app to celebrate the day. Students can use the hashtags #NewsEngagementDay, #LoynoSMC and #SMCEngaged to participate on a national level.
