The newest registered student organization to come to Alvernia is the Wolfpack Media Communication Club! This club will allow students to experience the world of communications as it relates to careers in the field and to progress in the field of open-minded creative media (COMM). Wolfpack Media is designed to bring communication students together, something that hasn’t happened since before the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
Wolfpack Media wants the ideas of its members to be the driving force in deciding club activities. The club hopes to organize events such as information sessions and other activities such as hosting guest speakers, movie nights, conferences, networking events and other field trips regarding the communication and the many avenues a career in this field could take AU students.
All students are encouraged to join, especially if they have an interest in the field of communications. The club can offer experience and guidance to students who want to embark on their desired career.
The club will be co-directed by Dr. Caroline Fitzpatrick, Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Communication and Dr. Jodi Radosh, Associate Professor of Communication. “I’m very excited to see the launch of the Wolfpack Media Club this year,” says Dr. Fitzpatrick. “Student clubs are so important for networking, leadership development and campus activities. Wolfpack Media will help create a vibrant campus and rewarding learning experiences outside of the classroom. We have creative and smart COM and DMM students, and I can’t wait to see what events and projects they dream up.
Wolfpack Media is brought to you through the dedication and hard work of Laura Nentwig AU ’23 (Inaugural President) and Sherrin Smith AU ’25 (Inaugural Community Relations Manager) who worked to finalize the constitution, attend Association meetings student government, create marketing materials, and organize the first general membership meetings and club events.
“I’m very excited about the wolfpack media club!” Sherrin Smith, community relations manager for Wolfpack Media, said. “There are many opportunities for COM students and students interested in media to come and share their ideas that we could possibly implement on campus and in the Alvernia community. We discussed possible events that I am very excited about in the near future and hope the members will be excited about as well.
