C or better for core COM classes 13

Tina Nalepa – 1851 Staff

Beginning this semester, communication majors will be required to earn at least a C grade in core classes. Failure to do so will obligate the student to repeat the course. The new policy was approved by the curriculum committee of the college.

The policy also requires students to understand the basics of writing, speaking, media, and more.

“We want our students to have these skills because they are so necessary for them to become successful professionals in the communications field,” said Dr. Janice Barrett, Chair of the Communication Department.

The communication department hopes the policy will ensure communication majors will have a basic understanding of the subject matters most important in the major.

“Overall I think this new policy is a great improvement. It forces students to work harder and strive for more rather than skimming through the classes that matter the most. If you’re a communication major, you should be putting effort into your core classes,” said Jonathan Peirce, a communications major.

Anyone with questions regarding the new policy can contact Dr. Janice Barrett at jbarrett@lasell.edu.

  4. Ecigs would someday replace tobacco-type cigarettes.

    The answer for this question is that electronic cigarettes are
    cheaper than the traditional tobacco cigarettes.

    Also referred to as the e-cigarette or the e-cig, these
    cigarettes have seen a current rise in reputation by people who find themselves making an attempt to kick the behavior of smoking tobacco
    cigarettes.
