Spring 2014 Graduation
Over 100 Communication Studies majors walked in the Spring 2014 Undergraduate Commencement Convocation on Saturday, May 10th, 2014 in the Academic Quadrangle at Bloomsburg University. Our very own Dr. Tim Rumbough was a reader of the names during the ceremony and Drs. Bodenman, Heineman, La Valley, Nagy, Shultz, and Turnage were also in attendance for the ceremony.
While we are proud of each of our graduates, we would like to recognize Abigail Morrison, who walked across the stage during the ceremony. This is especially significant since Abby was told by Doctors in 2006 that she would never walk again. Congratulations Abby! This has never been a more exciting time to be entering the marketplace for communication studies professionals. We wish all of our graduating seniors all of the very best as you set forth on your careers as communication experts. Please stay in touch with us and let us know how we can assist you as you make the transition to becoming a Communication Studies Alumni!
