Communication Studies Club

The mission of COMS Club is to share the power of communication through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), mentorship, and community. We hope to encourage and support Cal Poly students and the COMS community, as a whole, to join a welcoming and equitable space while exploring the realm of Communication Studies. We engage our students professionally with mentors, professors, and COMS alumni to make impactful connections. Finally, our club holds the highest standard of accessibility and inclusion to individuals from diverse backgrounds. Cal Poly COMS Club is a community thriving with intellectual minds to “appreciate the influences of culture upon their lives.”

Club Activities

Club meetings are designed to offer club members academic, professional, and social opportunities.
