Undergraduate Announcement Board (UGAB) for Communication
Week of April 2, 2012 – Twelfth Week of the Semester
Quote of the Week
It all depends on the story you choose to tell.
Welcome! The following students have recently declared their major as communication! We are excited to have you as part of the crew. Please welcome these students if you see them in classes: Keondrea Richards, Kaitlin Juhala, Amanda Van de Reit, Amanda Keeteman, Silla Murabito, and Marvin Tischhauser!
Lunch and Learn: Nonprofit Communication! Students interested in nonprofit communication can join Dr. Dohrman at 12:30 next Wednesday (April 11th) in the dining hall at a big table near the window side of the hall for a conversation about nonprofit organizational structures, jobs, and resources in St. Louis. Questions such as: What is a nonprofit? How do nonprofits fund their organizations? What could I do in a nonprofit organization with my communication degree? will be answered…and more! I hope to see you there!
Registration happening now: Be sure to register this week for the classes you want to take in the Summer and Fall 2012 semesters!
Of Note: Many students ask if our major is called communications or communication. The correct title is communication! Get rid of that S!
Broadcast Center: Did you know that communication students can take classes at the Broadcast Center near Hwy 44 and Hampton in areas like audio and video production and announcing? If you are interested in taking any of these classes to gain skills for radio, TV, or audio/video production jobs, contact Dr. DeSanto firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Recent Pawprint Articles: Pawprint writers are covering all sorts of campus news this week, including Maryville’s Gay-Straight Alliance, the Hunger Games movie, Alexander McCall Smith’s visit to campus and much more. Check it out
Have you thought about working for a political campaign this summer/fall to gain some experience in political communication? There are positions open for fellows and volunteers for all of the political campaigns, so go to your favorite candidate’s website and look up how you can get some experience as a volunteer.
Organization Development Network (ODN-STL) Event: ODN-STL is hosting an event about the gamification of business on Thursday, April 12th at the Heights at Hwy 40 and Hanley Rd. This event is $25 and promises to be both unique and very interesting. The event runs from 7:30-9:30am, so it is a great option for our students working full-time. This would be a great networking opportunity!
Press Club of St. Louis event:
The Press Club of St. Louis is hosting an event about publishing your own book
on April 26 out here in Town and Country at 6pm. The event is $17 to attend and includes an appetizer reception. Students interested in journalism and broadcasting might particularly enjoy this event.
What We’re Reading: Up this week…an article about one of the alleged lottery tickets winners from this past weekend! Do you believe she is telling the truth? What would you do with the millions?
What people are talking about in the halls…..five weeks left until summer, sexual orientation, the broadcast presentation in COMM 141 – Intro to Writing and (relatedly) how to post something to YouTube! You all probably remember that assignment from when you took COMM 141!
What is UGAB? The Undergraduate Announcement Board is the weekly newsletter for the undergraduate Communication program at Maryville University.
Make it a great week!
