  • Show up Monday, March28th (First Monday after Break)
    7:30pm CSB 54
  • Come with 5 simple words to describe the feelings of a suicidal teen. (ie. Lonely, Depressed...)
  • Bring a black cloth wide enough to wrap around your face
    (doesn't that sound good?)

New CMS Website Goes Live!

So you may have noticed that the Communication and Media Society website has gotten something of a facelift.  In order to better reflect the changing media landscape and to stay current with trends in new media, we have redesigned the CMS website!

In addition to enormous cosmetic and structural changes, the new site offers better student control over content and a completely redesigned, 'back-end' to improve webmaster workflow.

Ultimately, these changes will allow students to take more control and allow the reigns of power to transfer easily as students move up through and out of New Paltz.

Please bare with us through this transitional period.  Please send any bug reports or funny happenings to Bryan Neilon at:
