Student Life: Student Organizations

Undergrad Communication Studies

Students join the state, regional, and national professional associations in communication. Both graduate and undergraduate students have read papers at the conferences of several of these associations.

FAU Film Clubs

FAU's film clubs seek to integrate all majors from FAU in order to produce short films (10-30 minutes) and other various scripted video productions. Utilizing the on-campus resources such as OWL TV and the DeSantis Center, students and alumni have the privilege of creating multiple productions from preproduction to distribution.

  • FAU Student Film Association, Davie Campus
