Communication and Media Studies Alumni


Department graduates are enjoying a wide range of professional success all around the world. To showcase the success of our alumni, the department has created a Communication and Media Studies Wall of Fame outside of our new Campus Media Center in Compton Hall. Our alumni have enthusiastically responded to this new initiative by contributing $250 each to purchase a personal name plaque that is featured on the wall, with the proceeds going to a new Friends of Communication fund which directly benefits the department and our students. To purchase a name plaque, please click here: Friends of Communication

To update the department on your career achievements, please e-mail Dr. Tony Peyronel, department chair, at
