Welcome to the Community & Media Relations Office

Our experienced team of professionals tells the story of our beautiful two-campus college district through images, words and graphics.

We are the college’s primary news and information source.

Our goal is to support Laredo’s College mission by providing specialized expertise in public relations, marketing, advertising, graphic design and market research.
