Student Organizations

More than 40 student organizations are represented at the College of Communication, Information, and Media SuperParty each semester. Held the second week of fall and spring semesters, SuperParty is a college-wide recruiting event for student organizations, and it’s the best way for new students to find TCOM student organizations to join.

At Ball State, TCOM students don’t wait until they get into the “real world” to shoot a short film, make a sales pitch, produce a newscast, or host their own radio show. Students join our active organizations to hone skills learned in the classroom, have fun building their professional portfolios, and build relationships with fellow students. Learn more.

Immersive Learning Opportunities

Student-led immersive learning opportunities are at the core of the TCOM academic experience. Guided by a faculty mentor as part of a course, students produce short films, documentaries, and commercials; record bands; host promotional events; sell sponsorships; and create marketing plans for local, regional, and national clients. Learn more.

Internship Opportunities

Although they’re not required, we encourage our students to apply for internships early and often. TCOM students can earn up to six hours of internship credit during their time at Ball State. Our department’s internship coordinator can show you how to search for internships, including how to find one that fits your career goals. Learn more.

Travel Opportunities

We strongly encourage you to take advantage of the university's study abroad programs through the Rinker Center for International Programs. These programs can change your life and help you see the world through a different lens. Learn more.
