Featured Faculty

Cara T. Mackie

In the classroom, I not only teach theories of human communication, but also help students become better communicators. I start my courses by stating, 'It will take hard work to succeed, but I will work just as hard to be there for you. We are in this together. I believe in you.' Students leave my class with a better understanding of themselves and with confidence to succeed in various forms of interpersonal relationships.

Clubs And More

Lambda Pi Eta, the national communication honor society, promotes leadership in the field of communication through volunteering in the community, and in leadership workshops offered on campus.

Along with active professional organizations such as the Florida Public Relations Association, the American Advertising Federation, and the National Broadcasting Society, you can join our student-run media featuring FSCTV, The Southern News, Interlachen Magazine, Lux 12 Digital Marketing Agency, and FSC Radio.
