Students involved in service learning volunteer a minimum of fifteen hours in specifically chosen agencies as part of particular courses. These activities allow students to apply the theory they learn in the classroom to practical situations. Their experiences in the agencies also greatly enrich classroom discussion. In addition, service learning allows students to make a positive contribution to the community and connects Colorado State to the community of Fort Collins. Students also use service-learning experiences to build their resume following graduation.
Students interested in communication media have the opportunity to participate in several organizations under the management of the Board of Student Communications, an advisory board composed mainly of students. Media under the management of the board include the Rocky Mountain Collegian, the very successful student newspaper; CTV, the Emmy-winning campus television station run by students; and KCSU-fm, the student radio station.
Communication Studies majors often are campus leaders as a result of their communication skills. In recent years, our majors have served as president and vice president of the Associated Students of Colorado State University (ASCSU); officers of fraternities, sororities and residence halls; editor of the Collegian, the campus student newspaper; president of the Board of Student Communications; officers of many student organizations; and in various leadership roles for Campus Television (CTV) and KCSU-fm.
