Mission of the Project

U.S. Highway 45 was once a thriving vein in the national highway system. Many of the towns in Southern Illinois exist because of this highway. But after Interstate 57 was constructed, these towns were left to grow on their own. The communities that remain around Rt. 45 today, though faced with dwindling populations and economic decline, are full of hardworking and kind people with a deep well of stories to tell. It is the goal of the Muddy to Metropolis project to preserve these stories. We hope to give a voice to the rich history of these communities and the men and women who call them home.

About the course, 410-3 Multi-Media Publication Project

All journalistic skills and tools will combine to produce a report on a public issue important to southern Illinois. The report will be published both in hard copy and on the web. Students will have an opportunity to hone skills they already have learned or to learn new skills that broaden their repertoire.

Mission of the SIUC School of Journalism
