Alumni and Friends

The School of Communication Studies see ourselves as a family and as such, there is no need to see your relationship with the school as being over when you graduate. Please contact us whenever you have news to share! We are always excited to hear about your accomplishments after you leave.

You may also want to consider joining the Communication Studies Alumni Association if you are not already a member. Joining is the best way to keep up-to-date with all of the happenings here at the School.

We welcome donations to the school when you have the means. These partnerships improve our ability to continue building the School of Communication Studies into one of the very best Communication programs in the nation.

Your gifts help the school maintain its ability to offer excellent research and academic programs. Contributions of all kind allow us to continually advance the quality of the school by improving research facilities and instructional technology. Most importantly, your gifts help the School of Communication Studies make a difference in the lives of its students, the citizens of Tennessee, and people of the world by improving the school’s ability to generate and disseminate cutting-edge communication knowledge.

So, whether you are an alumnus, a donor, or both we are glad you have visited to see what is new with the school. We are sure you will find something new since the last time you visited. We are also sure that you have been active in new endeavors as well, and we are excited to hear about them.
