One of the most important things you can do during your time at ASU is start to develop a professional network. While it's not always just "who you know" (you do need to know something), the contacts you make now often can make the difference between a job at graduation, or living with your folks for a few more years.
A great way to network is through the student organizations in our department. Many of these clubs are student "arms" of a professional communication organization: for example, the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the student club of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). As such, they help prepare you for your career by introducing you to the profession you've chosen. Other organizations, like WASU and The Appalachian, give you the opportunity to work in student media. The clubs listed on this page have much to offer: guest speakers, contacts within the field, field trips, resume assistance, internship notices, free food, and much more.
AppTV launched on May 26, 2015 with a full range of original programming, utilizing the production skills of Appalachian State students.
90.5 WASU The App is dedicated to bringing the best alternative rock music to the High Country and is run by student staff members and volunteer DJs.
