Four Smedia winners for Griffith


Griffith College media faculty students’ stars shone brightly at the annual national student of the year media awards – the Smedias –  this April last, picking up a total of four awards. With only UCC and the combined DIT colleges winning more student of the year prizes, our Faculty of Journalism  & Media Communications team are rightly proud of our students’ excellent successes. Punching way above our weight in numbers, and proof that our small class sizes, our balance of academic full-time lecturers and part-time professional media practitioner lecturers is a winning combination. This year our students won more prizes than UL, DCU, IADT, NUIG, UCD and NUIM.
