Student majoring in the Department of Communication are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activites while attending PSU.  Listed below are a variety of activities associated with the Department of Communication.


CAPS 13, Cable Access Pitt State is the Department of Communication's student-produced cable television station. Our students learn to use studio and portable video equipment, editing consoles, and a complete radio laboratory with two audio boards, including a state-of-the-art digital audio production facility.

Through CAPS 13, our students produce a live, 30-minute weekly news broadcast, "CAPS 13 News,” in addition to many other feature shows.

Visit the Official CAPS 13 website.


Gorilla Radio

Broadcasting from the coolest little corner of Pittsburg State University, Gorilla Radio features a selection of college rock music along with a variety of specialty shows. Tune in every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday night from 6:00 to Midnight on CAPS 13.

It's Radio...on TV!

Visit the Official Gorilla Radio website.


Pitt State Theatre

The Pitt State Theatre Company presents several plays throughout the year at the PSU Studio Theater in Grubbs Hall and at the Pittsburg Memorial Auditorium.

Visit the Official Pitt State Theatre Company website.


Student Publications

Communication majors interested in pursuing careers in the print media, whether in journalism, photojournalism, advertising or another emphasis, are encouraged to join the staffs of the University's two student publications -- the Collegio, PSU's award-winning, weekly student newspaper, or the Kanza,the school's award-winning yearbook.

PSU, unlike many of the state's major university's, invites freshmen and sophomores to join the staffs of its student publications. Since the two publications operate independently from the Department of Communication, staff members for the Collegio and Kanza come from a wide range of academic disciplines. Nonetheless, many of our majors often serve in high-level positions with both publications.

The Collegio Online is the student newspaper's online publication.  Visitors to this site are encouraged to check it out.
