These activities facilitate networking with other students, faculty, and professionals working in the field.
Information about the student clubs and professional conferences are posted on the KIN bulletin boards, announced in classes (particularly KIN 70), and published in the Communicator, a newsletter written for KIN majors and minors by Dr. Shirley Reekie, Department Chair.
