Two Communication Studies students were on the top-winning teams in the final competition of the 11th annual Global Communication Project (GlobCom) conference in Borneo, Malaysia, which was held June 4–8.
Tina Safford ’18, a Political Communication major, and Michael Whitecar, MA ’18, a Communication Management major, were on the winning teams.
