There is so much that you can do to be part of the life of the Communication Studies Department at Clemson. Most of it doesn’t involve money at all!
1. Send us your business card.
*Send it to Eddie Smith, Department of Communication Studies, Clemson University, Clemson, SC, 29634-0533. We keep the cards in a display book to show our students how successful our alums are!
2. Mentor a student.
*Tell us your area of expertise and your e-mail address and we’ll connect you with a student in your area of interest.
3. Serve on an alumni panel for the annual Communication Studies Day (mid-April).
*Give us your area of expertise, e-mail address and work phone number and we’ll get back in touch with details.
4. Arrange for a student internship at your place of work.
*Give us your contact information (i.e., e-mail address and work phone number). Eddie Smith, our internship coordinator, will get in touch with you to discuss placing an intern with you.
5. Appear as a featured guest lecturer in a Communication Studies class.
*Tell us your areas of expertise, preferred type of class in which to appear, and your contact information. We’ll distribute that to our faculty, who will get in touch with you about the possibility of a visit to one of their classes.
6. Provide financial support for our students.
*We enthusiastically welcome contributions of any amount (even $5). Even very modest contributions add up to make a big difference for our students. We have many needs, including: research and presentation hardware and software for our Communication Studies Lab, funds for student travel to conferences and potential internship sites, support for student awards, and funds for special student activities (e.g., seniors’ graduation reception).
*Click on the Alumni Association link to make a contribution now with your credit card. Be sure to indicate that you want the contribution to go to the Communication Studies Department.

Please indicate that your check is for the Communication Studies Foundation Account.
