The Fresno Advertising Federation Foundation (FAFF) announced the creation of two new scholarships to be awarded to graphic design students in the Department of Art, Design and Art History and students in the Media, Communications, and Journalism (MCJ) departments.

The Bulldog Pup Culture website is Fresno State students’ take on everything pop culture. Created by Munro’s fall 2021 Digital Editing class (MCJ 104), students decided the theme and the coverage to be mainly focused on music, fashion, video games, movies/streaming, health and campus life.
The hybrid event will be held in person at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, at Fresno State’s University Dining Hall. Tickets are $50 and are limited to the first 50 registrants. For the first time, the celebration will also be streamed live through Zoom and later broadcast on CMAC.tv. Tickets for the virtual event are $8.
