The 2021 cohort of Communication and Media Studies students were welcomed in Richcraft Hall (formerly the River Building) by faculty, staff, upper year students, and the Communication Undergraduate Student Society. Here students listened to the department discuss the program, the professors that teach there, where this program could take them, and how to get involved on campus through the student society, CUSS- all in the hopes of benefitting them in the future.

President and Vice-President, Megan Damini and Catherine Johnson spoke at the presentation about becoming a member of CUSS, joining the mentorship program, taking advantage of the blogging opportunity, and applying to become a first year representative. They are pictured below with some of the faculty and staff members, along with some new, incoming Communication and Media studies students.

“We can’t wait to see where your journey at Carleton will take you and hopefully it will lead to CUSS, a student run society for communication and media studies students. It only costs $5 and we are always looking for new members.” – Emma Fournier, CUSS Social Media Director.

CUSS’s first general meeting will be held on Thursday, September 21st at 6:30pm. This will be a chance to pay the $5 membership fee, learn more about the mentorship program and blogging opportunities, and for first year students- the chance to ask questions about the First Year Representative position.

We hope you can all attend, and good luck to everyone this school year!
