Alumni & Giving

The Communication Studies department is enormously proud of the accomplishments of our alumni. Indeed, COMS alumni have gone on to do great things through careers in business, education, entertainment, health care, law, nonprofit, and politics. One of our goals is to use the departmental website to stay in touch with alumni from all across the country and share the many wonderful things you all do. For two recent examples of alumni success stories, click on the following links:

The Communication Studies Department encourages and welcomes donations. Without the alumni support of both our research and teaching missions, we could not be the department we are. If you would like to give in support of the department, perhaps the easiest way is to follow the link below:
