Senior Jennifer Rosenbloom (left) has made sure that she has had plenty of chances to shine this semester during her internship at CareFirst Blue Cross/Blue Shield in Owings Mills, Maryland, under the mentorship of  Barbara Gerber, the senior Account Representative there. The insurance industry has undergone many changes recently, and Jennifer has worked hard to learn how to adjust accounts in relation to national changes within the organization.

Junior Kris DeJesus has been given a wide variety of assignments by his mentor in the Office of Student Activities, Hope Miller, the assistant director at Stevenson University. Kris hopes eventually to work in the activities segment of higher education, so his internship has provided him with many experiences in negotiation, organization, event planning and management, and student development. As a member of MAP, Kris also relies on his own knowledge of student activities to give him an edge in planning and promoting.

Kevin Byrne, the Baltimore Ravens senior vice president of public and community relations, addressed a packed house on Nov. 17 as the department of business communication's eighth annual Shapiro/Rouse lecturer. Department chair Chip Rouse welcomed the crowd, and junior Emma Ragon made the introductions. What a surprise the audience had when Mr. Byrne took out his two Super Bowl rings and passed them around for everyone to try on, even explaining the best way to take a selfie! His talk was filled with stories of his years in professional sports, and his graciousness kept him around long after the talk was concluded. The department of business communication is once again grateful to its benefactor, Ron Shapiro, for making this event possible on a yearly basis. (Photos from SU Flickr account)

Kristen Schultz, the Baltimore Orioles director of community relations and promotions, was a guest speaker in business communication professor Stephanie Verni's Sports Communication class Nov. 18.  She brought lots of swag for the students, and talked at length about the Orioles' approach to promotions, even answering questions about the recent Buck Showalter garden gnome promotion. Thanks to Professor Verni's past career with the Orioles, the class has been fortunate to have a tremendous line-up of guest speakers from the world of sports communication. The class posed for a photo with the speaker after class was finished.

The fall business communication interns were thrilled with the crowds who turned out to look at their posters and chat with them about their internship experiences on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2015.  The 20 interns carefully planned and created their internship posters to showcase their work and prepared key points to talk about with guests. Great job, interns!
