These are exciting days in the Communications Department, and we depend on outstanding students like yours to keep us strong and vibrant. We hope that you will urge them to apply for one of our $1,000 scholarships. The scholarships will be presented at our Communications Awards Reception on Wednesday, April 4, in the Duncan Ballroom, Boling University Center, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Winners and their parents/guardians will be invited to join us and be recognized at the reception.
Please note that the deadline for our receiving the scholarship applications is 5 p.m. Friday, March 23. We have our fax number below, if students are running tight on the deadline.
If your students have an interest in the mass media, our department will provide a great opportunity. Here are just a few reasons why:
Our faculty have won more teaching awards than any department on campus. They also come from successful careers in the professional world of mass media/communications.
Our fully digital HD broadcasting/multimedia equipment is as cutting-edge as any area schools, and students get access to our TV/Radio skills courses and equipment during their first or second semester.
Our student radio station is currently ranked in the Top 5 in the Nation and No. 1 in the South. Students in TV, newspaper, and PR just won first- or second-place in the Best in the South awards.
Our Web design, photojournalism, social media management and multimedia courses will prepare your students well for careers in online media.
