"Having the opportunity to be a student in the Communications Department at Molloy is something I am forever grateful for. I was able to learn and develop a combination of media, professional, and new media skills that I will carry with me into my future career. I am so thankful to have met such amazing professors, staff, and fellow classmates and I wouldn't trade my experiences at Molloy for anything!"
