Join Us In “Making Murrow”
Edward R. Murrow ‘30 was a pioneer in the field of broadcast journalism. It is no coincidence that his college experience included access to expert faculty, state-of-the-art equipment, and hands-on experience at KWSC, one of the nation’s few campus radio stations at that time.
You can continue the Murrow legacy with a gift during #CougsGive. Please join us as we embark on "Making Murrow," a path to improve the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication and mold students into the next generation of industry pioneers.
THANK YOU to our generous sponsorship donors who made Murrow matches and challenges possible! Bruce Amundson (’75),
Art Eckman (’64), Adam Peterson (’02), and Liz Pritchard (’80) are passionate about Murrow student success and committed to fulfill these gifts.

Please join us as we take steps to establish the Murrow Center for Student Success, for the first time housing all of these services in one place. Almost 40 percent of the Murrow student body is first-generation college students. Expanding student support services sets up students for success by ensuring they have access to the best resources for their education.
These services include professional development programs that help students with resume-writing, portfolio building, interview skills and mentorships; study abroad and internship opportunities; and one-on-one counseling and tutoring services.
