College of Communication & Information opens doors to interested students

On Wednesday, Sept. 25 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. the College of Communication Open House in which the college will be helping students turn their interests and passions into careers.

This open house is not only for students interested in Journalism or Communication, but also for students who want to make the most of their major by earning a minor related to communication which could help them in their future career. Donna Silvey, a communication specialist in the college, says, “it’s really worth it to check out the fair to look at minors that could help you that are not directly related to your major. An engineer major does not realize that if he had a ‘information studies and technology’ minor, that he would be a more rounded individual for the job market.”

Francesco Torricelli is a freshman majoring in Journalism and Electronic Media and in his short time at the university, he understands that these skills can help anyone no matter what major. “The college of communications is for anyone looking to obtain skills in writing or effective ways to convey ideas. A minor from the college would help one’s writing skills and allow them to gain skills in communicating effectively to others and would certainly help in almost any situation a college graduate would find outside school.”

If a student has any questions about majors or is looking to add something to their credentials by taking on a minor, they should visit the open house Wednesday. Individuals knowledgable of minors and the school of Communication will be available to answer any questions students bring them and have more information on how to make a career out of what you are interested in.
