Communication Studies

COM Alumni & Friends

photoAs you may have noticed during your time as a COM major, alumni play a very important role in our degree program. COM alumni help keep us strong and make our program even better. We don't just need recent graduates to dig in and help, we need folks who have been out in the marketplace building careers for a long time and engaged in everything from graduate school to home-based businesses and all points in between. Alum who can come back and guest lecture, be a part of COM Studies Week, offer to be an internship supervisor, be available for mock interviews-or real ones, can greatly enrich our program in ways that we as faculty simply cannot do.
