By Mark Sublette
CLEMSON — Clemson’s student media organizations will host a town hall meeting with Clemson University President James F. Barker at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18, in Tillman Hall auditorium. Students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members are invited to ask questions on any university-related issues or concerns.
“This is a big event,” said Justin Pino, general manager for WSBF-FM 88.1, the student radio station. “We want to get the whole community together and let them voice their opinions to President Barker.
“All the student media put their heads together to come up with ways that we can increase our visibility on campus. CTV Channel 99, Semantics, The Tiger Town Observer, WSBF, Taps and The Tiger are all involved in the scheduling of this event,” said Pino.
Ashley Crisp, editor-in-chief for The Tiger, said hosting an event like this is simply part of the job of Clemson’s student media.
“Student media's purpose is to gather and present accurate information to the student body as well as the faculty and staff,” said Crisp. “The town hall meeting is just another opportunity to continue communication between the administration and students.”
