CCI Gives Thanks

The College of Communication and Information celebrated Giving Tuesday 2017 with a “give thanks” event held in the CCI Commons in Olson Hall.

Students, staff and alumni gathered to say thank you to the donors who supported the First Passport Fund and Student Media Fund. Guests made handmade thank-you cards for donors and holiday crafts for Akron Children's Hospital. All had fun at the themed selfie station. Stephanie Smith, an assistant professor in the Schools of Communication Studies and Journalism and Mass Communication, shaved her head after supporters gave more than $5,000 to fund student passports. At a minimum, 45 more CCI students will earn passport scholarships to study abroad.

Thank you to everyone who made the "CCI Gives Big" event a success.
