The best way to find out what it’s like to study Communication at Champlain is to hear from current students and alumni. Explore some of their stories and experiences below.
Beyond the classroom, students have countless avenues to explore their interests, connect with others, and dive headfirst into their field. Communication students can join the local chapters of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and Lambda Pi Eta (LPH), the official communication honor society of the National Communication Association. They can also gain valuable professional experience at Maple Street Media, a student-run PR firm.
