InterCom

InterCom is the alumni magazine of the College of Mass Communications and Information Studies. A twice-yearly report on the state of the college, it comes through the eyes and words of a cohort of students in the Publication Writing and Design class taught by instructor Lisa Sisk. The magazine provides the students' perspective on who we are and what we do.
