Hi! Student media is a big part of the Communication Dept. Students produce a weekly newspaper, The Lance; a yearbook, Excalibur; three weekly TV shows; a feature film each semester; radio broadcasts; and a Web site, www.crusadermedia.com. Check out crusadermedia, explore the different student media options and imagine yourself as editor, producer, photography director...so many opportunities, only four years! You may want to become a lifer, like the five full-time faculty members in the department. We're all Evangel alums. We can't wait to meet future EU alums and help you find your God-prepared plan. See you soon!
