In 2012, the Moody College of Communication opened its new facility, the G. B. Dealey Center for New Media (formerly called the Belo Center for New Media), and completed renovations of the CMA and CMB buildings in 2015. These projects greatly expanded the resources available to advertising and public relations students.
The G. B. Dealey Center for New Media (DMC) boasts a variety of state-of-the-art resources. With a total of five floors, the DMC is known for its open and airy environment filling every hallway, classroom and office with natural light. Upon entering the building you will see a foyer spanning the length of the DMC with team-meeting tables and seating available at any time the building is open. Next to this stretch of working area is Cappy’s Place, the DMC’s beloved café complete with breakfast tacos, sandwiches, snacks and of course, coffee! Peek outside and you’ll see a long row of protected, outdoor picnic tables running along the front of the DMC as well as open-air tables near the front lawn and a beautiful water garden.
The Stan Richards School of Advertising & Public Relations is happy to call the 4th floor home with ample open study areas complete with power outlets, printers, foyer seating and tables. Classrooms are surrounded by three hallways with various benches and windows.
We also regularly utilize a state-of-the-art conference room designed for mock client presentations and other important student projects and meetings, often called “the blue egg” because of its oval shape and blue walls. The blue egg is right next to the open and collaborative Teaching Assistant’s carrel area for one-on-one help. Surrounding the carrel area are faculty offices, in which you’ll see students visiting teachers’ office hours every day of the week.
