Hear from our students
"Majoring in communication is my personal path of self-discovery. It enables me to foster an in-depth understanding about myself and also, in larger terms, how people interact with one another. With communication, I learn what I see, I see what I learn, and reflect on what I know everyday. How can you not love a discipline that enlightens you about yourself and explains the plethora of happenings around you?" - Melany Le '18.
