Communication Week at Ohio University dates back to 1970, just after the College of Communication was formed in 1968. Over the years, the Scripps College has hosted such notable professionals as Rev. Jesse Jackson(1998), Peter Arnett (1992), Roger Ailes (1989), Ted Turner and Hugh Downs (1982).
After 37 years of annual Communication Week activities, in 2006, events were no longer held during a concentrated five-day period, but spread throughout Ohio University's ten-week spring quarter. In 2013, Communication Week was reinstated to celebrate the college and its alumni and this year's event will take place March 23-27.
As part of the Communication Week celebrations, the School of Media Arts & Studies will be hosting an alumni panel on Tuesday, March 24th from 4:00pm - 6:00pm in the Schoonover Center Lobby. The panel "Getting Out / Breaking In" will feature recent MDIA graduates sharing their personal stories on breaking into the business. All Students are encouraged to attend this valuable career and networking opportunity, followed by a mixer with pizza and light refreshments from 6:00pm - 7:00pm.
