Hi! We're the students in Professor Sonya DiPalma's MCOM 293: Strategic Communication course, and we're asking for your support this #GivingTuesday season!

As a UNCA Mass Communication alum, you know what it takes to transfer the skills you learned in this department into careers. Whether you're a journalist, public relations practitioner, film producer, social media strategist, photographer, scholar, or a professional in a completely different field, you know how hardworking and creative MCOM students like us must be to learn both the theoretical knowledge and multimedia skills to thrive in today's dynamic media industries. To make our MCOM curriculum even more multi-faceted, we're looking now to incorporate a media day into the student experience, and we need your help! 

This experience will supplement our in-class learning with invaluable career insight (which could ultimately lead to industry connections and potential internship or job opportunities), but we can't do it without you!


So we created the Funding the Future campaign as a project in our strategic communication course! Please help make our campaign successful!

Your gift of any size gets us closer to our goal of funding a media day professional development field trip for junior and senior MCOM majors. Funds may be used to cover trip-related costs such as transportation, ticket fees, food, resource materials, and supplies. With the support of alumni like you, we'll be able to combine our exceptional learning inside the classroom with real-world experience from professionals just like you. Join us by making your gift today and funding the future!

Thank you!--Hayden, Phoebe, Abram, Ashley, Avery, Jared, Zoe, Madyson, Marie, Micah, Jeannine, Callahan, Cooper & Addison
