The world’s first J-school, the University of Missouri-Columbia’s School of Journalism, will celebrate its centennial anniversary Sept. 10-12 by officially opening the doors of the Reynolds Journalism Institute, a think tank where scholars will study journalism of the 21st century.

Founding Dean Walter Williams welcomed the school’s first class of students on Sept. 14, 1908, and since then the school has made a name for itself as one of the top journalism schools. Alumni from across the country are expected to attend the three-day event, which will include a barbecue, golf classic, symposium, class reunions, culinary showcase, technology summit, football game and much more.
