GARTH JOWETT is quoted in a KTRH story about strategies television networks use to gain viewers:

LARRY KELLEY presented Big Ideas and Audience Segmentation for developing campaigns on Mar. 21 for ZHIWEN XIAO’s COMM 3340 Health Campaigns Principles course.

Master’s candidates Paige Bukowski, Anthony Calderon, Carmen Galvan, Jana Spitzley, and Nina Spitzley were inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. Graduate students must rank in the upper 10 percent of their class to be accepted.
