The Department of Communication Studies of West Chester University congratulates one of our recent graduates, Tom Schneller, for winning the prestigious Emmy Award from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Tom was part of the team that received the award for Outstanding Technical Team Remote for NASCAR on FOX Sports.

Tom graduated from West Chester University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies in December 2006. During the summer before his last semester, he interned with Game Creek Video, Ltd. (GCV). That internship experience helped secure him a position with GCV after graduation. He might not have realized it at the time, but his internship paved the way to becoming an integral part of an Emmy award winning team.

Please make sure your fall tuition bill is paid (those receiving financial aid will need to check if their aid has arrived). All students with unpaid bills will have their schedules cancelled on the third day of class (August 27). Don't let the "purge" erase your schedule!
