What a delight it was to have a chance to visit with BizComm alum Brian Myers whose job with the Livestrong Foundation as the fundraising and events manager brought him back to a fundraising event in Columbia, Maryland, this week. His career has him traveling to many different venues across the United States to meet with local fundraisers and offer a visual presence of the Livestrong Foundation. Congratulations, Brian, and best of luck as you continue with your career!

Lots of BizComm-ers had a hand in the SMILE move-in for the first-year and transfer students on Thursday, Aug.21. Department chair Chip Rouse drove the water and snack cart around during the day, and junior Chris McKneely was one of the men's soccer players who dedicated their time and muscle to helping tote suitcases and TV sets into the residence halls. The move-in day was full of smiles and tears and lots of hugs. Photo from SU Flickr account.
BizComm grad Alex Zeidler sent us a quick "checking-in" note. He writes: "We are about three weeks away from the Grand Opening of Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, and these past three months have probably been the most stressful but most exciting three months of my life. Juggling multiple projects and dealing with a deadline that isn't going away is one tough task, but BizComm taught me how to deal with these situations.
The BizComm department is thrilled to have three new interns this fall. Samantha Perillo, Nicolette Stoner and Tyler Turk will help with a number of initiatives, including the First-Year Seminar, the Internship Preparation class, research and data collection for the department, newsletter creation and event planning.
The interns will receive academic credit for their work. Here, in the photo on the left, is Samantha Perillo in Ireland, and on the right is Nicolette Stoner in her previous internship with the Spiritual Spectra.
BizComm alum Jess Dixon Bieber (2009) checked in with the news that she is soon to start a new job with the Fallston Group, a full-service public relations, marketing, strategic planning and brand management comany that specializes in "building, strengthening and defending reputations," according to the website. Jess' past experience with Jigsaw Marketing provided her with strong interpersonal skills, particularly in building and strengthening relationships. While at Stevenson, she was editor of The Villager and captain of Stevenson's NCAA women's lacrosse team, among other things.
