Advising in COMS

In the School of Communication Studies, students can expect outstanding advising in the following ways:

  1. First year and transfer students in COMS will work with Student Success Advisor Maria Leatherwood, who will meet with them and provide assistance in understanding university registration, general education requirements, and expectations in the major.  You may email her: or call 740-566-8722.
  2. After the first year, students will work with a Faculty Advisor.  All tenure track faculty in the School of Communication Studies advise undergraduate students, providing them with one-on-one assistance in planning their course schedules and preparing for their careers.
  3. Additional help is available for students interested in internships.  For more information, visit our Internship page or contact Dr. Karen Deardorff.
