NCASC Receives "Club of the Year" Award

By Rachel Hafele
UWRF University Communications

MAY 2, 2008--The National Communication Association Student Club at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls has been honored by receiving the "Club of the Year" award. The award was given to the group by the National Communication Association, a national organization for students in communication.

The National Communication Association Student Club has been an active group on campus since 2004. "It is a club for students who have an interest in both the practice and theory of communication studies," says group leader Jennifer Willis-Rivera, who is an assistant professor of communications studies and theatre arts at UWRF.

The winning club was chosen based on the overall look of portfolio, visibility of the club on campus, contribution to the communication discipline, professional development of members, and service to the campus and surrounding community.

"We are very proud of this accomplishment," Willis-Rivera said. "Congratulations to the NCASC."

In its mission statement, the student group promotes the study, teaching, and application of the principles of communication through educational and social functions.   The group meets on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building on campus.
