What’s the best thing about COM TCNJ?  The best thing about the Communication Studies Department is the sense of community. The relationship-building within the department makes the educational experience more meaningful. I’ve had multiple classes with the same professors, which has given me the opportunity to work with them and develop my skills without starting at square one with a new professor every single semester.

A message for the Department:  Thank you to everyone in the Communication Studies Department. I did not start as a Communication Studies major, but I know I made the right choice switching to Communication. When I was searching for a new major, the COM Department was so nice and welcoming, and I knew that I had found my new departmental home for the next three and a half years.  As my college career continued, all of my COM professors were absolutely amazing, They were knowledgeable, and treated each and every student with respect. The COM Department really played a big part of my college career, and I learned so much that will certainly help me throughout life. Thank you to the entire Communication Studies Department.
