The Office of Communications & Marketing Student of the Year Award

The Office of Communications and Marketing puts a focus on highlighting student life both to the campus community and to prospective students considering making Tech their home. The student experience at Tech creates a community that is an integral part of the student life and the Tennessee Tech brand. The student workers in our office have an important role to play in helping share exactly what it means to live wings up. Because of their contributions to our office and the campus community at large, the Office of Communications and Marketing is honored to participate in the university's annual Student Leadership Awards and to recognize an OCM Student of the Year.
