New semester brings new opportunities for LSC students

As the fall semester begins, we are excited to welcome to Hiram Smith Hall new and returning students from across the state and across the world.

In the next fifteen weeks, LSC students will explore the theory and practice of subjects at the forefront of science communication. Some students will create multimedia projects and design original websites. Other students will produce professional-grade audio projects and work on manuscripts that may be published in academic journals.

This semester, it is also LSC’s pleasure to welcome a new lecturer to our faculty. Jenne Meyer is the Vice President of Brand for the healthcare company ERDMAN and serves on the Board of Directors of the companies BizStarts, BrightLife Innovations, and Jouze. This semester, she will bring her business experience to the classroom to teach LSC270: Communication in Life Sciences Industries and LSC 435: Integrated Marketing Communication.

“I truly enjoy the moment theory meets practice and application,” says Meyer. “I look forward to those moments with the students in Life Sciences Communication and applying the art, science, and magic of marketing and consumer behavior to the field of health, the environment, agriculture, and the biological sciences.”

Many opportunities are in store for the LSC community this semester, and we encourage all students to get involved.

“As classes begin, the faculty and staff at the Department of Life Sciences Communication are looking forward to cultivating lasting relationships and creating an energetic community that fosters the growth of budding leaders in the field of science communication and beyond,” says Dominique Brossard, chair of LSC.

Possibilities abound. So, go forth, get involved, and seize the opportunity of a new semester.
