Welcome New Students

Welcome to the Class of 2019 at the Northwestern University School of Communication! Our programs in the communication arts and sciences are distinguished by global innovation and a strong commitment to nurturing emerging artists, scholars, and professionals. In the classroom, you’ll learn from outstanding, generous faculty members, all leaders in their fields. Outside the classroom, you’ll learn how to put your new knowledge into practice through engaging, creative co- and extra-curricular activities, internships, and other opportunities that help prepare you for the future.

We look forward to learning and working with you, and we hope to see you at Weber Arch this fall!

It will be held Friday, Sept. 18 on the lawn east of Annie May Swift Hall from 3 to 5 p.m. You’ll get the chance to meet up with your Class of 2019 peers as well as upperclassmen, graduate students, faculty, and staff from the SoC.
