Our chapter meets bi-weekly with industry professionals to talk about everything from their careers to their best advice for college students and beyond. We also meet regularly as a chapter for bonding activities like Friendsgiving or to watch whatever big sports game is happening that week. Our club members encompass all kinds of Communications majors such as PR, Broadcast Journalism and Telecommunications to name a few.
