Hi folks. I cut and paste what I could recover from the previous wiki, but I'm not an expert at this. If someone knows how to fix all the formatting, that would be great. Otherwise, at least the info is here...

Time for a new year! The 2007-2008 season has begun

Since the wiki is less active this year, this page combines communication studies as well as mass comm., org. comm., journalism, PR, and advertising.
