The second half of the Fall 2018 semester has been a productive one for the Department of Communications.

Our inaugural Graduate School Fair in October was a resounding success. Representatives from Communication graduate programs at the University of Alabama, Auburn University, and Kennesaw State University answered questions, visited with Communications faculty, and recruited UNA Communications students for their respective graduate programs. All three universities are planning to return next year.

The Department continues investing time and financial resources into rebuilding our audio and video production programs. By the end of the semester, we plan to install new audio mixing boards in both audio studios and our television control room. We’ll also add equipment that will allow us to produce and record live TV newscasts. Stay tuned!

Lambda Pi Eta, a communication honor society affiliated with the National Communication Association, inducted more than 30 UNA Communications students at a ceremony in early November. To qualify for membership, students must be juniors or seniors with a minimum 3.0 GPA in all courses and a minimum 3.25 GPA for all Communications courses. Congratulations to all inductees and to faculty advisor Stephanie Montgomery for organizing the inspiring ceremony.

Roar Lions!
