Well, it’s the start of the fall semester and you are pumped, right? You are ready for new classes, new professors, new found freedom after living at home this summer, promises you’ll study more this fall, you’ll get that resume started, you’ll eat better or workout more, and you’ll stick to a new plan and keep your enthusiasm up. You’ve said or thought all this, right? Who hasn’t…even faculty members do this every fall. In fact, most faculty will tell you that’s what they love about teaching college–the fresh new start every fall with new students, new classes, plans to get more work done, plans to get papers graded and returned more quickly, a new diet or exercise routine, get the office organized (again), and the list goes on. Students and faculty are more alike than you may realize.
Cutting the ribbon are Dean Carey Adams, Sara Gwin (PR major), and President Cofer.
Now it’s official. We also bid a fond (or not-so-fond) farewell to the burlap wallpaper. See ya! And had commemorative swatches as giveaways at the event.
Finally, for those of you who are new to this blog, welcome. As a COM major or minor I will email you new posts directly. It’s important that you know what’s going on in the department, so I will provide relevant information on opportunities and events that we provide to you.
Join our Department of Communication FB page. You can “like” it and find really good information there, just as you can here. The blog and FB page are linked.
While you are on the FB page, Like it! Also, check out the event page for information about COM Week 2010: Lead, Engage, Change.
Have a great semester and look for more information on COM Week 2010 and other student opportunities in next week’s InCommon updates.
