Collegian Plans to Move to Bellisario Media CenterAs many Collegian alums know, Penn State released its plan to demolish the James Building last June.

Saying goodbye to the James Building will be difficult for Collegian staffers. It’s the site of happy memories for generations of student journalists, and it saw the Collegian grow and change in ways the paper's founder couldn't have imagined. From its home in the James building, the Collegian launched its website, initiated social media platforms, and began a shift toward multimedia and video.

However, it's time for a new era of student journalism to begin at Penn State. The Collegian intends to move in on an “external invitation” brought down by Dean Marie Hardin, to rent space within the incoming Donald P. Bellisario Media Center, set to open where present-day Willard stands by roughly December 2020. The private “Collegian Suite,” will face a large open newsroom with designated Collegian desk space. 

The new space will provide many challenges as well as new opportunities. However, one thing will remain the same: the Collegian will continue to foster new generations of student journalists while reporting important and helpful news for the Penn State community.
