Alumni Corner

Congratulations to our newest alumni, the Class of 2020!


Since 2017 we have hosted multiple outstanding communication alumni speakers to coincide with our Department of Communication’s Advisory Council visits. The alumni from differing communications professions came back to campus to share their career experiences and advice with current students and council members:

  • Taylor Shawver (2017), Client Manager, for Integral Communications Group (based in New York, NY)
  • Dakota Kate Isaacs (2015), Director of Beauty Brands, US, at Future Beauty Labs (based in New York, NY)
  • Caroline Kenny (2015), Social TV Producer, CNN (based in Washington, DC)
  • Sarah Platock (2013), Associate Producer, HLN/CNN (based in Atlanta, Ga.)
  • Kyle Rees (2010), Director, B2B Sector Lead and Team Manager at Gartner for Marketing Leaders (based in Washington, DC)

Our students especially love hearing how alumni got to where they are and how mentoring helped them along the way. Please email commdept@cofc.edu to express your interest in becoming our next guest speaker during the COMM Advisory Council visit!


As graduates of one the largest majors on campus, Department of Communication alumni are critical to the growth and development of the national reputation of the college and department. We have graduates who are award-winning broadcasters, directors, filmmakers, financiers, public relations executives, and more. 

Our goal is for our alumni to share their successes and to network with newer graduates and/or current students looking for internships and career advice. We also hope to provide resources for the continuing professional development of our alumni. Alumni, please connect with us through our LinkedIn page where we post job openings specific to the field of communication.
