Communication Week 2017

It’s our week to shine – it’s COM Week! Each spring semester, our students and faculty  —  along with the university and surrounding community — join together for a week of forums, panels, PR Day, a career fair, and the WolfPack Speaks! competition. It’s a celebration of what we learn and practice as a department in our wide variety of course work, in and out of the classroom; sharing vibrant ideas and concepts that can better our world. Communicating with a focus, verbally and in the written word, that inspires and enlightens is at the heart of COM Week. Don’t miss it!
