The Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication dedicated the Peyton Anderson Forum on Dec. 2 in Athens.

Made possible by grants of $500,000 from the Peyton Anderson Foundation and additional funds from Tom and Edwina Johnson, the forum has proven to be the hub of all activity for the Advertising and Public Relations department throughout the fall semester of 2015.

The beautifully crafted and furnished forum was home to a Creative Consultants bootcamp on research by Yan Jin, associate professor of public relations at UGA. Students were able to push together chairs in the forum to interact as teams and learn more about research for their potential clients.
The department also hosted a very successful AdPR Week with a line-up of speakers from around the country. Grady College came together from Sep. 28 to Oct. 2 to hear from the well-renowned advertising and public relations community; most of which activity occurred in the forum.
From roundtables with executives, to one-on-ones with professors, to elaborate group work, the Peyton Anderson Forum has proven to be the ideal space for Grady students to learn and grow. The AdPR department is excited for another great semester in the spring of 2016, and also for the potential that this space has to offer.
