On the fourth day of smiles, we decided to get into the Fat Tuesday spirit! So here to help you decide what you are going to gorge on tonight for your Fat Tuesday meal, our CCPA professors shared some of their guilty pleasure meals with us.
by Dr. Sandra Duhe Welcome back to SMU and CCPA. We missed you. I hope you had a spectacular summer, full of fun, enjoyment and learning. We have an exciting year ahead.
There is a lot I'm thankful for this holiday season, although I still can't believe Thanksgiving is already here. Where did 2017 go? In my delightful role as CCPA chair, my gratitude list is long. I’ll share a snippet of it here. Heartfelt wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to all those who make CCPA a (really) special place on campus. Yay! We have a new CCPA blog that is the “go to” place for all things CCPA. No more well-kept secrets about all that our students and faculty are doing. At last – we are on our way to getting fancy new teaching and student spaces for CCPA in Umphrey Lee. Fingers crossed we see construction start in 2018. Our programs in organizational communication, political communication, social innovation & nonprofit engagement, and public relations & strategic communication are full of hardworking students who are thriving under the undeniable dose of “tough love” we provide each day. CCPA faculty are literally circling the globe doing what they teach. See our blog for a few examples. Much more to come! Our alumni count is 1,700+ and growing. We’re in the process of forming a Young Alumni Board. And, our nicely attended Homecoming Reception was just the start of getting better engaged with the grads who inspire us to keep on keeping on. Truth be told: CCPA loves our Meadows School of the Arts Dean Sam Holland. Thank
