Arguably, one of the most important aspects of college life is getting involved, and there is no shortage of options to do so in the Department of Mass Communications.
Several student organizations and faculty-run outlets presented opportunities to students at Media Madness on Tuesday. Groups such as the National Association of Black Journalists, Public Relations Student Society of America, The Houstonian, National Broadcasting Society and The Film Society presented themselves to students in hopes of gaining new members.
Along with student groups, programs offered through the university were also presented, including KSHU 90.5 The Kat English radio station, KSHU 90.5 HD2 El Gato Spanish radio station, sports play-by-play broadcasting, Priority One Public Relations and The Global Center for Journalism in Democracy.
Students heard from faculty members Debbie Hatton, Mel Strait, Jean Bodon, Ph.D., Marcus Funk, Ph.D, Kelli Arena and Peter Roussel, as well as several student leaders from the organizations.
Students from outside the mass communication school were also present and interested to learn how they could get involved in the communications industry.
Campus media offers a fast paced and exciting experience for any student. For more information, check out one of the bulletin boards inside the Dan Rather Communications Building.
