The School of Communications brings together 1,400 students and more than 80 faculty and staff, creating a vibrant learning environment that has propelled it to be one of the nation’s great communications schools.
Elon students encounter a challenging curriculum and immerse themselves in professional settings – all under the mentorship of teacher-scholars with years of experience in news, interactive media, television, public relations, advertising, web design, screenwriting, film production, photojournalism and sport management.
“What makes the Elon School of Communications different is that I can learn something new in the morning and put it into practice the same afternoon. Our facilities allow us to push the envelope every day. By the time we graduate, we’re unstoppable,” said Paul LeBlanc ’18, now a breaking news reporter for CNN Politics.
Joe Accordino ’11, an Emmy Award-winning producer with ESPN, echos LeBlanc’s sentiments. The alumnus credits his success to the university’s commitment to getting students involved as soon as possible.
“At Elon, I certainly worked hard in my classes, but Elon is really about how much you want to put into your extracurriculars because that will determine your collegiate and professional success,” Accordino said. “That’s such a unique opportunity that Elon gives its students. You’re able to be as great as you want to be.”
