Communication Week

It has been one of the busiest weeks in the Department of Communication. It was Communication Week.

This is a week where the department gets to show people across the campus what we do. Also, all areas of emphasis and organizations in Mass Communication and Communication Studies get to come together and have fun. Events outside of the classroom bring together students, faculty and even alumni for fun and education.

This year’s theme was “Game Changers: What is Your Digital Destiny?” The committee chose this theme because of the accomplishments of Aaron Dignan, the week’s distinguished lecturer, and what our society is experiencing in terms of communication. Dignan wrote a book about how games can benefit learning, and he is also the co-founder of a digital strategy firm. The committee felt that, as communicators, we have the ability and power to change the game, and in this digital society, it is important to adapt and find one’s digital destiny.

In the spirit of games, the week kicked off with an event modeled after NBC’s Hollywood Game Night. Groups of professors went head-to-head against students in games like How Do You Doo?, Clue Boom, Take a Hint, and Off the Top of My Head.

That evening, alumni from across the state and the country came back to campus to speak to and network with students.

To finish off the week (or three days), some communication faculty strutted their stuff in Project Runway. Dr. Hahn dressed as the Monopoly Man, Professor Schlegel as the Chess Queen, Professor Bruce as Princess Lolly, Professor Westermann as Princess Peach, Dr. Franken as Pac Man. Dean Mallard and Dr. Cain took home the crystal pumpkin as Mario and Luigi.

Motivational Monday!! “So this message really spoke to me because of some circumstances that happened to me this past week. The quote is spot on in the lesson that I learned which is that you cannot change the past and you need to not let it determine your attitude for the day. When you cannot do what’s been done you just have to ‘keep going’.”- Skyler Hoodenpyle
Happy Easter!!
