The Communication Society of CSUSM is changing the world with words one opportunity at a time. This organization offers a variety of events to attend -- meetings that offer career advice, workshops on social media, and volunteering at events such as those that benefit the homeless. Whether a member wants to seek ways to better themselves or to better the community, Comm. Society provides the tools for success!

Comm. Society is open to ANY major, for this organization strives to foster campus and community involvement for ALL.  Attending events hosted by Comm. Society allows members to network with fellow students, as well as with professionals that can launch members into their future careers.

Meetings are held twice each month, both containing the same information, allowing members to choose which day/time works best with their schedule. Please refer to our website for more details. Visit us at
