College of Communication and Information

The School of Communication Studies adopted a family through the Battered Women’s Shelter of Summit and Medina Counties to help make a family’s holiday season a bit brighter.

 

Applied communication junior Julia Hazel was the winner of this year’s fifth annual Kent State LaunchNET Elevator Pitch competition.

The competition gives students 90 seconds to pitch a business idea or personal skills to a panel of judges for a chance to win prize money. Judging this year’s competition was Kristin Williams, executive director of Career Exploration and Development; Rachel O’Neill, marketing of Segmint Inc. and Kent State alumna; and Marjorie Wachowiak, School of Fashion Design and Merchandising lecturer.

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

Toastmasters three-time world champion of public speaking and Kent State University alumnus Rich Breiner, Ph.D., ’80, visited campus recently for the first time since graduation nearly 40 years ago.

School of Communication Studies (COMM) marketing assistant Mikala Lugen sat down with Breiner to talk about his college experience, his successful public speaking career and his tips for leading a happy and prosperous life.

Panelists spoke to a packed house of approximately 80 people at the "Redefining 'Refugee': Stories from a Global Crisis" discussion held Nov. 17. 

Kent State freshman Elena Neoh Ern Hui knew that she wanted to major in business, but it was not until she participated in the Flashternship program last spring that her career path became crystal clear.

The Career Exploration and Development department arranged a Flashternship for Ms. Neoh Ern Hui at FedEx Custom Critical, and that is what guided her to the field of human resource management.

Communication Studies majors Eunice Reyes, junior, and Juleanna Smith, senior, will host a panel discussion titled, “Redefining 'Refugee': Stories from a Global Crisis” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15 in Rm.
