Department of Communication faculty have been featured in the media in recent weeks.


Department of Communication lecturer Geoff Campbell mused about turning 50 in a Nov. 4 op-ed in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He said the only thing he wanted for his birthday was not to have a party.


"I always wanted to live the kind of life that would give me great memories, to have 'fragments I have shored against my ruins,' to take T.S. Eliot out of context," Campbell wrote. "And that's what I have, along with a singular hope of building more. I'm turning 50, an age the commercials tell us is an age of getting things done. As long as those things don't include a party, that's precisely what I intend to do."
