BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.— The Gardner-Webb University department of communication studies is pleased to present its annual senior communications show, which begins with an opening reception on April 26 from 4-6 p.m. and runs through May 7 in the Communications Studies Hall. The show is free and open to the community.

The exhibit will feature a wide variety of work including audio and video projects, public relations projects, photography, graphic design work, and more.

According to Dr. Bob Carey, chair of the communication studies department, the show gives students a taste of what a professional exhibit would be like. “This is a great opportunity for our students to show some of their best work,” said Carey. “From photography to graphic design to public relations, our students will be showing a wide variety of pieces which represent skills needed to be successful in today’s communications industry.”

Chelsea Gregory, a public relations major from Tega Cay, S.C., said preparing for the show has given her an opportunity to reflect on how much she has learned.  “I am glad to have an opportunity to show what I have done the last four years. To be able to display our work is rewarding and to see how much I have been able to learn is amazing,” she said.
