COMS WEEK 2018-April 9-13

Radford University students planned and organized a week-long event dedicated to the field of communication called COMS Week, which runs April 9-13.

The Strategic Event Planning course mirrors an actual public relations agency, with students divided into four groups covering philanthropy, guest speakers, a carnival and social media pages for the event.

“Even though we have our separate agencies, this class definitely requires a lot of group work and we wouldn’t be able to succeed without working together as a class and communicating with each other daily,” said senior Alexis Gardner from Baltimore. “My group has had to coordinate with the philanthropy group’s dates and times of their fundraisers and the best way to promote it. We’ve all had to bounce ideas off of each other.”

The bouncing of ideas led to a new theme for the week – “COMLYMPICS.”
