Dateline Brazil

Sixteen students and three faculty members traveled south of the equator for two weeks in March to tell the story of the people, places and things in Curitiba, Brazil. The students were members of the College of Communication and Information's International Storytelling course.

Written by former student Bryan Kelly, the terror-filled tale weaves the story of five young actors who reenact a grisly murder-suicide that occurred at Heathridge University 20 years ago. However, they come to realize it’s not just a simple reenactment. The students soon learn one thing – evil is real.

JMC is pleased to announce the winners of the 2014 Alumni and Friends Awards. The school will honor the winners of the William D. Taylor Award, Fast-Track Awards and Sharon Marquis Friends of JMC Award at the annual reception on October 17.
