Welcome Back Students!

As we begin another year here on the hill, we are so pleased that we can spend it with you. Every month we will email out a newsletter containing highlights from the past month, events occurring in the next month, and future events. Our calendar is full this semester of exciting things to do and take part in.


On the first days of school, our faculty and current communication students took part in first day selfies. The results have been awesome, and the pictures are posted on our social media accounts.

Dr. Mize Smith’s class, Small Group Communication, took the first day selfie to a new level by taking a selfie next to something that represents their small group.

Upcoming Events

Beginning September 1st, we will be holding our first photo contest, What Does WKU Mean to You? You can submit your entries on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram by tagging us, sending us a direct message, or by using the hashtag #WKUandYou. Last day to submit an entry will be September 30. The winner will be announced Friday, October 2nd. The winner should stop by our office located in FAC 130 to receive a swag bag.

Also beginning September 1st, we are beginning our semester long photo project, #RedTowelTuesday. Every Tuesday, we would like for you to send us pictures of you and your Red Towel at games, on campus, on vacation, in class, etc… Who knows? You could be featured as our Red Towel Tuesday!

Future Events

Towards the end of October, we will start collecting nonperishable food items for our #FallFoodDrive. Help us give back to our community this fall.

In November, we will continue our Fall Food Drive. There will also be a photo survey asking ‘What is your favorite place to volunteer/serve?’

The week before finals in December we will be holding a trivia contest with more information to come in later newsletters.

If there’s anything you think we should be involved in, or a social media campaign you’d like to see, stop by our office in FAC 130, and let us know!

We hope you all have a great first few weeks of school, and follow us on social media for all things communication. Links to all of our platforms can be found on our website at http://www.wku.edu/communication
