Interpreters Theatre: "No Exit"

The 2012-2013 UNI Interpreters Theatre season opens with Jean Paul Sartre’s 1944 existentialist play "No Exit." The production, directed by Paul J. Siddens III, communication studies, tells the story of three complete strangers with pasts they are all reluctant to
reveal, who find themselves in an unusual predicament. They have been led to a well-appointed room they are to share where there is a door, but they can never leave; there are lights, but they never go out; and it’s unbearably hot. Admission is free; tickets are available one hour before the production begins.

Careers in Minutes

What can I do with a degree in communication studies? We have some answers. “Careers in Minutes” will explore careers in the field of communication focusing on careers associated with majors such as public relations, electronic media, general communication, interpersonal communication, journalism and more. Alumni from the communication studies program who work in these fields will discuss their careers and answer questions about their jobs, a typical day, employment outlook, etc. The first part of the event will have a speed dating format during which students can visit with alumni who are working in positions of interest to the student. This segment will take place in the University Room, lower level of the Maucker Union. The second portion will be a panel of alumni (in person and through video conferencing) that will expand on their positions outside of the Midwest and answer questions as well. The panel will be held in the Auditorium, Lang Hall.
