DWC hosts "Coffee & Communication" event
Students, faculty, alumni involved in networking event
On Thursday, Nov. 2, NSU’s Department of Writing of Communication hosted a fall event titled “Coffee & Communication,” bringing together current COMM majors, alumni, faculty and Deciding students for an afternoon of coffee, community-building and networking.
Students interested in the major were invited to learn more about the recently relaunched B.A.in Communication program and its new concentrations and minors in digital media production, journalism and strategic communication. The afternoon event also offered information about student opportunities through the B.A. in Communication program, including NSU Student Media, NSU’s literary magazine Digressions, published by DWC, and communication internships offered through the department.
In addition to spending time with communication faculty, current communication majors, minors and Deciding students also had the chance to interact with alumni of the program.
“The event was great,” said Shanti Bruce, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Writing and Communication. “I especially enjoyed having our alumni come back and mingle with current students and faculty.”
“As an alumna, the event is a great way for me and others to come back and mentor the current undergraduates on how the professional world is after graduation,” said Nikki Chasteen, who graduated from the program in 2017. “It’s also a great way to meet with other alumni from the department and network. I can’t wait to attend the next one.”
For current students, the event provided the opportunity to meet with faculty outside of the classroom.
“The event was a great way to get to know DWC professors and fellow majors I had never met before,” said Gabby Thompson, a junior communication major. “It was a laid-back environment, which made it perfect for networking. It provided a nice opportunity to discuss potential involvements and future classes.”
