Each Spring, the Department of Communication Studies holds Communication Day, a special event designed to illustrate the importance of communication in our academic, personal, and professional lives.
Communication Day 2018 will take place on Wednesday, March 28 from 9-4 p.m. in Coleman Hall (first floor, west wing). The event is free to public.
The theme of the 2018 conference is "Research: Making Sense of the World Around Us." There are several panels scheduled to pique your interests, inform you of important concepts and a time to learn more about your instructors/professors.
During Communication Day, the speakers and panels showcase the intellectual work engaged in by EIU Communication Studies undergraduate and graduate students across an array of concentrations and option areas. Students will be presenting papers and creative projects that focus on critiques of popular culture as well as political discourse.
Additionally, students will also present projects that connect various communication theories to different discursive environments. Communication Day also includes panel discussions about internships, job networking, departmental honors and graduate studies in communication.
