Who We Are

The Communications Department is the primary liaison between USG, the student body, media, and other third-party actors. The members of the department strive to create transparency from within USG and to communicate all of USG’s projects, events, and initiatives. We also strive to increase student engagement by promoting student organizations and communities across the university. 

Four Teams. One Passion. 

Our key mission as the Communications Department this coming year is to (1) create more evergreen content to explain USG and USC resources, (2) grow our audience by increasing promotional content and revitalizing our social media, and (3) increase campus collaboration. Driven by the same passion to improve the undergraduate experience, four teams in the department deliver on this mission: Creative Services, Digital Strategy, Media, and Public Relations.

Our Teams

Creative Services

The Creative Services team works with the entire organization, overseeing all aspects of graphic design. The team has approval over all graphics being used by the organization and works to best represent the organization through events, infographics, motion graphics, promotional items, etc.

Digital Strategy

The Digital Strategy team leads all marketing outreach efforts for USG. They are charged with spearheading promotional campaigns, devising social media strategy and overseeing the communication of USG’s informational resources. The team also works with USG Programming committees and assemblies to market USG at events and works to best portray the organization.


The Media team serves all of USG’s promotional needs via photography and videography. Working alongside the Digital Strategy team, they are responsible for illustrating the organization’s work and events to the student body and spearheading campaigns to promote the organization.

Public Relations

The Public Relations team is responsible for managing relationships and partnerships with external entities, including but not limited to student media, registered student organizations, staff, faculty, and the student body at large. They also work on drafting public statements, press releases, community letters, and memorandums relating to USG or its subsidiary bodies.
