The Department of Language and Communication is involved with the following student media:
Argus, NSU's award winning art and literary magazine.
Potpourri, the NSU yearbook.
NSU's yearbook, the Potpourri, is an independent student media organization. Students plan, design, and produce it. Many editorial staff members receive performance scholarships linked to their responsibilities. One scholarship is also awarded each year to an incoming freshman. The book's coverage runs from March to March of each year, allowing the staff to feature many campus events. For more information or to ask about scholarships, please contact Advisor Stephanie Masson via e-mail at email@example.com or at 318-357-4237.
