In a world that’s shifting under our feet faster than any other era in a lifetime, information and media access are critical. So Quinnipiac University’s School of Communications put together this podcast to introduce some of our students so they can talk about what they’re learning, and how it’s even more relevant now. Listen to the school’s dean, Chris Roush, interview different students about why those chose the school, how they got interested in their major, and their plans for the future. 
 
The show is produced by David DesRoches, director of community programming, student Michael Bachmann and, for the third season, student Evan Koch.
