Media Relations

The Office of Marketing and Communications works with traditional media outlets, such as newspapers, radio and TV stations, and online publications, to inform the public about news and events at Hood College.

For the Media

The media are welcome to cover any campus events that are open to the public. To help meet your needs, please reach out to the Office of Marketing and Communications prior to coming to campus so we can get coordinate information and help you find what you need, including sources for stories. You can also see all recent news on our campus news page. Also, a list of our faculty experts is available here. To schedule interviews, or to be added to our press release distribution list, contact
