Communication Department Hosts Second Annual Kickoff Event

default article imageThe Communication Department hosted its second annual Communication Kickoff Event during the first club meeting time on Wed. Sept. 4. All of the department’s student-run organizations had a table at the event.

Lorna Schmidt, Director of Advising of Communication, Faculty Advisor of Monmouth Oral Communication Society (MOCC), and a communication instructor, played a key role in hosting the event. The purpose of the event was, “ to introduce new students to the clubs and their members...new students to faculty who might become mentors… and to help the clubs increase their membership,” said Schmidt.

Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) created the flyers for the event and promoted the event via email and social media. The turnout for the events second year was larger than its inaugural kickoff, and the department hopes that the event continues to grow each year.

Students majoring in Communication are required to complete a practicum credit with one of the clubs within their specialized area. This allows students to gain real life experience in their fields of communication. They can participate in WMCX, Hawk TV, PRSSA, The Outlook, MOCC, Comm Works, or The Verge. However, students of all majors are welcomed to join and participate in the clubs.

Delta Tau Delta Closed by National Headquarters

Delta Tau DeltaThe Kappa Gamma chapter of Delta Tau Delta (DTD) fraternity at Monmouth University has been shut down.

The decision came from the National Headquarters of Delta Tau Delta in mid-August. The reason is attributed to low membership and an administrative deletion. At the end of the spring semester, there were 14 active members. The University cannot continue an organization’s charter once their nationals has closed the chapter.

Mary Anne Nagy, Vice President for Student Life and Leadership Engagement, said, “During the spring semester, there was some action taken by their National Headquarters in Fishers, IN to limit their operations. They’d have a number of concerns; size of organization, operational issues, etc…I think it’s been something that’s been coming for some time.”

Members of DTD have been contacted for comment.

The Kappa Gamma chapter was able to submit an appeal to their Nationals, which they did. The decision came at their annual Arch Summit meeting. Despite the appeal, the chapter was closed.

This might not be the end of DTD, though. Nagy said, “Like most organizations that get closed here, there may be a period of time down the road when the current membership has all graduated and we’re in an expansion position to add more (organizations).” Nagy also said the University would be open to partnering again with an organization previously recognized in the future. However, they would have to have made significant changes and the former members all must have graduated. A typical re-partnering may occur every three to four years.
