Ice cream and advising

Ice Cream AdvisingIt’s that time again for students to seek advising for course registration, which officially opens on Monday, Oct. 20, 2014

In preparation for picking their Spring 2015 semester classes, communication students are encouraged to attend an advising meeting (and ice cream social!) on Wednesday, Oct. 15, from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Mountain View Room of the Student Center.

While enjoying free ice cream, Lambda Pi Eta students will share their advice about progressing through the communication major. In addition, faculty teaching COMM 479: Senior Project in the spring will discuss the themes of their sections of the course so students can sign up for the one that best fits their educational and career goals. Finally, the department chair will share news about work-study opportunities that he arranged with the college and local businesses especially for communication students.

Students who want to declare the major in communication are also invited to this event.
