At Asbury College, we see our students as windows of opportunity for Christ-centered service and leadership in many of the world’s most influential industries. The School for Communication Arts continues to change and grow as our students are challenged to think creatively and critically about delivering God’s message of love to diverse audiences. Communication Arts students learn to tell compelling stories truthfully and effectively because that ability is more than a desirable skill, it is a responsibility.
Today more than 300 students are majoring in journalism, communications, media communication, and theatre and cinema performance. The school also offers minors in leadership, public relations, and theatre and cinema performance. Asbury College is constructing a state-of-the-art facility to match the caliber of students we are attracting through these rapidly growing programs.
The groundbreaking will also kick off the public phase of the Building Windows of Opportunity Campaign. Former Disney actor Dean Jones ’53 and his wife, Lory, are serving as honorary campaign co-chairs.
The new facility will be named in honor of Asbury College Alumnus, former Board of Trustees member and retired Salvation Army Commissioner, Andrew S. Miller, known as a model communicator and servant to God and man.
