"The Liberal Arts department has been great in helping me with my double major in communication and psychology. As a result of the relationships I forged in the Communication Department at UIU, I was given the opportunity to be part of the National Communication Association's Lambda Pi Eta Honor Society where I was exposed to a lot of different divisions in communications. I have built a strong foundation in understanding communication and how it could enhance my future. Being part of the UIU Communication Club has also made me appreciate and learn more about the communication world. Also, as an intern at the Office of Communication and Marketing I have taken advantage of a big opportunity to see and learn how the field of communication is used in a daily basis."
