Welcome to the SMC!

At the S. Gale Denley Student Media Center students are given hands-on experience with all things media. From reporters and photographers to news anchors and radio DJ’s, the SMC houses multiple enterprises to help students learn both new and existing forms of media, and the technology behind them.

Named after Mississippi journalist, educator, and former student media advisor S. Gale Denley, the center was established in 2004 to provide a dedicated newsroom for all publications. Since its inception, the various groups have worked together, employing hundreds of students and producing nationally and internationally acclaimed work.

Students pass out yearbooks to others.
