Communication covers a multitude of majors, not just speech; it also includes languages, reading and journalism. For a week on campus, the Communications Department will host Comm Week to show students you can use your major in your career, regardless if you are not a communications major.

Each day will be a different speaker between 12:30-1:45 p.m. On March 27 will be Sara Flores, who works for KEDT morning edition and is on NPR, in Room 514 in the White Library. Also in the library, on March 28, is Jessica Savage, investigative reporter for KRIS 6 News, who recently investigated then-Mayor Dan McQueen. In the speech lab (MC 211) on March 29-30 is Omar Lopez, senior corporate communication specialist for AEP, and Hilda Lamas, who is a recording artist but also attends A&M-Corpus Christi and is president of Com. Club.

“We wanted to get community figures because you see them or hear them every day,” said Mendy Meurer, speech professor.

You don’t have to be a communication major to come listen and talk with some of the speakers. Comm. Week runs from March 27-30.
