Dean Stone Celebration

Each spring the School of Journalism celebrates its founder, Dean Arthur Stone, and its current students with an annual scholarship and awards banquet.

In 2020, the Dean Stone Banquet has been moved to a virtual celebration. Get in touch for details:


Thanks to generous endowments and donor contributions, the school awarded nearly $175,000 in scholarships at last year's banquet.
