Amanda Strain
Just like that, 4 years have come and gone. With each day that passes I have never been more thankful for being a part of something that as taught me so much. As a Communication Studies major I have learned the meaning of hard work and determination. I have shown myself that I am able to articulate my thoughts through presentations, papers and everything in between. The skills that I will take away from being a Communication Studies major will help me succeed in graduate school. I could not thank my advisor or professors enough for all of the knowledge that they have instilled in me both inside and outside the classroom.

Kate Armstrong

I will be graduating from Bloomsburg University with a degree in Communication Studies and a concentration in Human Resources. As I prepare to graduate, I feel a mixture of emotions- excited, nervous, eager, but most of all, prepared and confident. I am proud to announce that starting in the Fall of 2017, I will begin the Master of Science in Instructional Technology graduate program here at Bloomsburg. The professors, mentors, skills, and opportunities that the Communication Studies Department at BU has given me is unparalleled. In addition to completing 3 internships during my undergraduate career, I am also the President of the National Communication Association Student Club (NCASC) and a Husky Ambassador. Being involved with the NCASC is one of my favorite memories from the last 4 years; From the friends I made to the networking opportunities I had, and the leadership skills I learned from my Executive Board and Advisor Dr. Shavonne Shorter, I never would have had any of these experiences without NCASC. I strongly encourage any Communication Studies student to get involved in NCASC!

 Dr. Schreier’s Retirement
