Cronkite Village is a residential college designed exclusively for Cronkite School first-time freshmen (FTF). Cronkite Villagers live and learn together in Taylor Place, the downtown Phoenix campus residence hall.
Students in Cronkite Village have the opportunity to interact with professionals from newspapers, radio and television stations, public relations agencies, nonprofit organizations and digital-media organizations in one of the nation’s top media markets. They also gain hands-on experience working on a website and a radio show or producing videos, photojournalism and public relations projects.
Cronkite Village also hosts fun activities like a Halloween party, karaoke, grocery bingo, intramural teams and other events for its residents. Villagers enjoy the strong sense of community they build through these activities.
Living with like-minded, motivated students in the Taylor Place residence hall helps students make friends, get involved and assimilate quickly to college life. In fact, Cronkite Villagers often become student leaders within the Cronkite School and ASU.
You can learn more about Cronkite Village and what students are doing at the Cronkite Village Web site.
Beginning in Fall 2011, all Cronkite School residential freshmen who are not in the honors college will be part of Cronkite Village. Students admitted to Barrett, The Honors College will live in the Barrett residential college.
Cronkite Village is open only to journalism students who plan to live in Taylor Place. Students should be aware that there is an additional $49 fee each semester to be a member of any ASU residential college in addition to the usual residence hall charges. This fee will automatically be placed on students’ housing bills.
