Julia Pettingill Webster, CPSM, (center) now works as the senior marketing coordinator at RK&K, a multi-discipline civil engineering consulting firm. Jake Quimby (right) works at Stevenson University as a communications specialist in the Office of Admissions, where he assists in developing, writing, and designing recruitment communications, including print and digital media.

The alums spoke about their careers and offered some advice to the 12 students attending the catered luncheon.

Congratulations to the three BizComm faculty who celebrated years of service at the university's annual service banquet on Monday, Oct. 20 in Rockland Banquet Room.  Adjunct instructor Jim Smith (left), shown here with Dr. Kevin J.

The First-Year Seminar students in Business Communication are busily working on their final presentations about the recent class trip to Philadelphia. They have taken photographs and videos, and are considering the stories they learned that are unique to the City of Brotherly Love, as well as their own stories, interpretations and reflections about what they learned there. Presentations to the department will begin on Nov. 11.
