Student Media

1,357.

That's the average number of days of an undergraduate education. The experiences a student accumulates in those days are largely a matter of personal choice.

From Day One, we work hard to give our students plenty of choices -- choices that provide relevant exposure to the communication industry, strong peer and faculty relationships and opportunities to launch meaningful careers. Take Student Media, for example. From day one, our students can work for our independent, nationally recognized, nationally award-winning student media. And from day one, our students begin building their personal brands — the experiences and attributes that set them apart from the pack.
