Welcome back Coogs!
And welcome to Coog Radio! Coog Radio not only provides a creative outlet for students to express themselves but also introduces them to the world of broadcasting and media journalism. Our radio shows, podcasts, and blogs represent the student body in diversity and musicality demonstrated in the genres and themes. We want to help you find your voice — whether it be playing your own music, hosting a show, conducting interviews, reviewing albums, or photographing concerts, we’re here to help you expand your creativity and gain the experience you need to succeed. For any interested students – we are holding our general meetings on Tuesday, September 3 and Friday, September 6 (you only need to attend the day that works best for you!) from 5-6pm in the Impact Room at Student Center North.
Meet Your 2019-2020 Coog Radio Executive Board!
