Students to Present Research at Regional Conference
Two students have had their work competitively selected for presentation at the annual meeting of the Eastern Communication Association (ECA). ECA is the oldest communication association in the country and is holding its annual meeting on April 24th - April 28th in Pittsburgh, PA. Senior Christina Miadich had her paper titled "Theory of Interpersonal Communication Motives: A Review of Literature" and senior Megan Wise had her paper title "Detecting Deceptive Communication through Computer Mediated Technology: Applying Interpersonal Deception Theory to Texting Behavior accepted for a platform presentation. Professor and Chair of the Department of Communication Studies, Theodore A. Avtgis said "the competition was fierce this year so to have two of our students selected to present research along side some of the brightest minds in the field is quite an honor. I am very proud of both Christina and Megan and look forward to witnessing their presentations at the conference in April."
