Communication, meets
with students

Communication students and alumni were paired to enjoy Pizza with the Pros, an annual event during Comm. Week. Pizza with the Pros is sponsored and hosted by Dr. Peter Pringle, the Luther Massingill Professor of Communication. Pringle said all the communication professionals who attended were alumni of the Communication Department.

“We are exceptionally proud of what our alumni have done. At such an early age, they are leaders in their careers. The University should be very proud of them and this program, which has grown substantially over the years,” Pringle said.
