Student Lounge

Located in 103 Reese Phifer, his space is perfect for student organization meetings, class project collaboration or personal study. The conference room seats 10 and is equipped with Apple TV connectivity on the extra-large, high definition monitor. There is also a collaboration room furnished with white boards for groupthink sessions and brainstorming.

The main room is outfitted with sofas and tables, for catching a break between classes. The Student Executive Council regularly offers refreshments in the student lounge—including a variety of snacks, coffee and energy drinks—as a fundraiser for the SEC’s Student Organization Fund. This fund helps C&IS student organizations secure resources for on-campus events, travel expenses and general organization needs.

Space in the collaboration room and the conference area is limited and should be reserved ahead of time to secure spots. To reserve any of the spaces in the new student lounge, call Tisch Student Services at 205-348-8599 or send an email to tischstudentserv@ua.edu

 

Media Writing Center

At the C&IS Media Writing Center, upper-level and graduate students provide assistance for media writing assignments and coursework. Sessions are held in the C&IS Commons on the second floor of Reese Phifer Hall. Students may walk in for assistance as mentors do not take appointments. Mentors use a coaching method of instruction to assist students in identifying areas of improvement while guiding students toward their own solutions. Mentors are instructed to avoid simply proofreading copy and, prior to visiting the center, students should edit the text for which they are seeking help. In most cases, sessions are limited to 30 minutes.
