The Communications Inter-Club Council hosted their fall CommUNITY mixer on Thursday afternoon at the Housing Piazza near the dorms. Just about all the COMM clubs, including Ad Club, FMAA, PRSSA, Latino Journalists, Titan Radio, ETC and Lambda Pi Eta, showed up at the event to mingle with each other and try to recruit new members.
“This is really an opportunity for students, specifically within the College of Communications, to get to know some of the clubs that are under the college of Comm,” says CICC Director of Communications Sarah Marin. “These clubs are academically tied with the college and some focus on the various concentrations that we have such as advertising with Ad Club and Entertainment & Tourism with ETC…so this is an opportunity for students to get to know those clubs and network with each other”
Marin stressed that there is benefit for students to join these clubs.
“They definitely get that professional development and get more of a chance to learn about the fields that they’re studying right now and even get to attend conferences and get to attend events that will benefit them in their career path.”
Here is a list of clubs that students can join. Most of them meet weekly and have opportunities to attend professional conferences, that can lead to networking and jobs.
