Journalism Department turns 50
The Journalism Department invites the campus community to join in celebrating the department's 50th anniversary. The two-day celebration will begin Friday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. in the Coppola Theatre with the screening of Deadline Every Second, a documentary that features the lives of 12 Associated Press photographers, which was produced by Professor of Journalism Ken Kobre and Professor Emeritus of Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts John Hewitt. The screening will be preceded by a reception at 6 p.m.
A series of panel discussions, ranging from the latest in investigative journalism to making the most of social media in reporting, will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Seven Hills Conference Center. Panel speakers will include Thomas Peele, author of Killing the Messenger, Lowell Bergman, producer and correspondent for Frontline and Karen Wickre, editorial director at Twitter.
A lunchtime panel, sponsored by the Center for Integration and Improvement of Journalism, will address journalistic approaches to covering structural racism. Lunch is free, but you must register to attend this panel discussion.

Clipper free round-trip transfer at Daly City BART
As of June 1, the free round-trip transfer for the Muni 28/28L to/from Daly City BART moved from paper to Clipper; the free fare is stored automatically on the Clipper card when it is tapped upon exit from the Daly City station. The transfer to Muni must be used within 23 hours of exiting the BART station and the second transfer must be used within 24 hours of exiting BART. Therefore, the free transfer can be used on the return trip from campus aboard the Muni 28/28L bus, even if the shuttle was taken to campus. Since the change, there have been occasionally problems with people being charged when they should have received a free transfer. The University Transportation Committee is working with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency to resolve the issue. In the meantime, BART commuters are advised to register their cards and regularly check their ride history at the Clipper website at www.clippercard.com/ClipperWeb/index.do to ensure that they are receiving the free transfer.
Those who have been incorrectly charged can get a refund. To request a refund, send an e-mail to email@example.com with the following:
- a list of dates on which you were incorrectly charged and the amounts
- a PDF attachment of your ride history from the Clipper website
Contact Wendy Bloom at firstname.lastname@example.org for answers to questions.
New telephone billing system
In an effort to better serve the campus community, the Division of Information Technology is replacing the current telephone billing and telecommunications management system. The new system will be accessible through SF State Gateway using single sign-on. Authorized individuals will be able to view details of telecomm services and phone bills of their department.
Training on this new system will be held in late October; users will have access to view phone bills in the new system in November 2012. For more information, contact email@example.com
