Student chapters are especially important to us and an integral part of our legacy. Since a group of female journalism students came together in 1909 and founded the organization at the University of Washington, we have strived to develop the best communicators for industries here in Western Washington, by helping our student chapter members grow professionally and continue their involvement with AWC throughout their career.
Student membership is a great way to connect with AWC and enjoy benefits such as:
- Interview skill building and resume writing tips
- Building relationships with faculty and peers
- Touring worksites and shadowing members
- Networking opportunities with communications professionals
To start an AWC chapter at a college or university, contact the AWC national office.
Local student chapters at the University of Washington, WSU – Everett Community College, and Washington State University provide a variety of these benefits, including interaction with AWC Seattle members. Student members are invited to attend events hosted by the Seattle professional chapter at discounted student rates.
The UW chapter welcomes all communications students—any student from another Puget Sound-area college or university is welcome to join. Follow them on Facebook.
The WSU chapter helps prepare women for various communication fields by fostering networking opportunities. Follow them on Facebook.
The WSU Everett chapter helps prepare undergraduates to communicate professionally and effectively in any industry. Follow them on Facebook.
