Communications Clubs and Organizations
Student life in the Department of Communication is vibrant and always moving. Our students are actively involved in the community and on campus! From collegiate sports and internships to clubs and student groups, you never know where you’ll see a fellow classmate. Our Department offers students (both majors and non-majors) a number of ways to get involved in communication-sponsored activities:
Visual Communications and Photography
Our Department's graphics lab and photography studio give students the experience of professional photography production. Housing a modern digital photographic manipulation facility, students are able to shoot and produce photography from full-color digital SLR cameras. The graphics laboratory also houses large format printers, equipment for mounting and framing photographs, scanners, and state-of-the-art digital photo editing software.
Radio and Audio
The WWEC 88.3FM (the campus radio station) broadcast studio centers upon a digital mixer and a computer running DJ and automation software. Student DJs reach the campus community via professional-grade microphones, record shows directly to disc, and interact with listeners and guests by way of a computer for social networking, a request line phone, and an adjacent guest studio.
The Etown College Photography Club encourages the craft of photography. Members meet to learn and share photographic skills and techniques.
Lounges and Collections
Our student lounge is a well-equipped multimedia theater featuring a large flat-screen television, DVD player, computer interface, theatrical and studio lighting, and comfortable theater-style seating.
Our media equipment collection (affectionately referred to as the "SLA" after the Student Lab Assistants, or SLAs, who staff the room) contains a wealth of technology available for Communications students to borrow for use in their course production assignments. The equipment includes MiniDV video cameras, digital SLR still cameras, microphones, headphones, and related media production gear.
Jay Firm is for those interested in public relations and strategic communications. The Firm completes real-world communications and promotional projects for clients both on and off campus. It is entirely student-run and is based off an agency model to give students experience balancing multiple accounts and clients. Jay Firm is an excellent opportunity for students to test run agency life and gain experience to help them enter the agency world after graduation.
Society of Collegiate Journalists
The Society of Collegiate Journalists is a national honor society that promotes high journalistic standards in student produced publications and electronic media. The Elizabethtown College chapter of SCJ offers trips, brings in guest speakers, hosts seminars and conducts other related activities. An induction ceremony is held each year.
Elizabethtown College has a radio station, a television station, a student newspaper and more. Our on-campus media opportunities give our students additional ways to hone their skills and develop their passions and resumes.
