Five Manship students were honored with LSU’s Distinguished Communicator Award on Dec. 17.
LSU’s Distinguished Communicator program, considered the first of its kind in the nation, recognizes students who demonstrate exemplary levels of communication skills during their undergraduate years.
Sponsored by Communication across the Curriculum, the award recognizes students who are outstanding writers and speakers with strong visual literacy and technological communication skills. Recipients completed 12 hours of communication-intensive courses, submitted digital portfolios and maintained a 3.0 GPA in their C-I classes. The students built digital portfolios, displayed as public Web sites that include their communication projects from courses, internships, leadership roles and public service.
