The Nicholson School of Communication’s Hall of Fame award is given to recognize alumni from the Nicholson School of Communication for their career accomplishments and contributions to the school. This Hall of Fame claims a wide range of exceptional professionals who started their careers at UCF, as well as honorary inductees who are not official UCF alumni, but who have made a significant impact on the school. Inductees include professionals from all communication majors within the NSC — advertising-public relations, interpersonal-organizational communication, journalism and radio-television. Those who have received this honor have made UCF proud with all they have achieved and are exceedingly deserving of the Hall of Fame award.
