The Holliday Forum and Journalism Building Terrace are intended for activities and functions that are related to or support the mission of the Manship School and the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs. 

Each event requires an individual reservation and no regular/recurring functions are ever scheduled.




Facilities & Labs

The Manship School's Journalism Building brings together the best of old and new. Elements of the historic old building, including doors, hardware and building materials, were integrated into the new design. The latest video, broadcast and computer equipment let students and faculty make the most of technology. At the heart of the building is the Holliday Forum, which sits under a 2-story rotunda.
