Message from the Director

Welcome to the Communication Studies Program’s new alumni webpage! This is a very exciting time for the program. The Communication Studies program is continuing to grow. As a result, our program recently hired Dr. Mary Fornoff, who joined our department in the fall.

This year, we have 237 enrolled majors and 31 minors in our program. While this year has been difficult due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused us to move all of our classes online in the middle of the semester, our faculty, staff, and students have persevered and continue to build a strong community.

For our alumni, I hope you look back on your time in our program with fondness, and have felt that the education you received has taken you on the career journey you hoped for–or maybe something even better than what you dreamed of. If so, we’d love to hear about it.

Don’t forget: we now have an alumni and student newsletter, and new social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram)! Please join us on the platform of your choice to stay in touch with our news, spotlights on students, alumni, and faculty, and events that matter the most on campus.
