Congratulations graduates of the Department of Communication

Congratulations graduates of the Department of Communication. For the second year in a row, one of our majors is the general undergraduate Convocation Speaker for the entire University. While this is a pretty amazing programmatic feat, it's even more impressive when you meet Matt St. Germain, this year's Convocation Speaker, and listen to him. He is friendly, driven, socially responsible and welcoming-all traits that you might associate with future leaders. Matt has accepted admission into our LINKed MA program.

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down to lunch with four of our 12 new Communication degree CAS scholarship winners. I asked their opinions for ways to improve the undergraduate experience in our department and they had great ideas. I ran out of notepad paper. These four stars are McKenna Jennings, Gabrielle Dolenga, Victoria Gan, and Brooke Wylin.

If you are thinking of Communication as a potential degree and have questions, contact me (dearjim@msu.edu). In the recent Washington DC March for Science, which took over the National Mall for a day, "science communication" as a key skill and necessary new ability for future researchers, journalists, policy advocates, supervisors and engineers, and scientists and their managers was emphasized again and again. We can teach you how to be a leader in science communication!
