The Communications Residential College, CRC, at Northwestern University is the home for students interested in communication and its various forms: written, video, audio, and photographic.
Because of this, CRC typically features residents with a strong interest in media and communication. Our most popular majors are journalism, radio/television/film, and communications studies.
The Communications Residential College exists to foster an environment promoting the study and collective understanding of communication in all its myriad forms, be it words, images or sound.
