Business Communication News

Congratulations to Business Communication professor Heather Harris and her research partner Dr. Kimberly Moffitt from UMBC for their insightful article showcased on in media res, a media commons project. The article, titled "She's Gotta Have It: The (Re)focusing of Nola Darling," examines the Netflix series "She's Gotta Have It" and its portrayal of Nola Darling, the protagonist. Professors Harris and Moffitt have in the past contributed a chapter to Fight the Power: The Spike Lee Reader (2009)  In media res is "dedicated to experimenting with collaborative, multi-modal forms of online scholarship," according to the website.

Take a look at Business Communication student Krystal Alexis (from SUTV) as she narrates a short tour with Foster Wilson, director of facilities, through the new student space in Garrison Hall. From e-sports to a fitness center, Krystal makes the space sound exciting and welcoming! Watch the video here.

Congratulations to the staff of The Villager for an excellent fall, 2017 semester under the leadership of editor-in-chief Gage Markley, who will continue his editorial duties into the spring semester. The staff ended the semester with a breakfast catered by Terri's Cafe while still planning for the next issue's upload.

The Villager posts about 15 new articles every week on the site, stevensonvillager.com. Readership continues to grow, and the staff is able to track hits weekly. Business Communication associate professor Chip Rouse is The Villager's advisor.

A hearty holiday "thank you" to the seven Business Communication students who volunteered to help at the Alumni Association's "Breakfast with Santa" on Saturday, Dec. 9.  Five of them, journalism students, served as face painters and two more were busy photographing the event. Our painters included Krystal Alexis, Alex Button, Tim Craig, Danyelle Robinson, and Claudia Tonti, and our two photographers were Lauren Novsak and Wornden Ly. Business Communication students have been participating in the event for a number of years, volunteering in response to Associate Professor Chip Rouse's call. Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, professor of Business Communication, was also on hand for the festivities.

The Business Communication department's annual fall service project, SOCKTOBER, collected over 200 pairs of socks that were again delivered to the Helping Up Mission, 1029 E. Baltimore Street. The organization of the project was a joint effort between members of  '47 House (the integrated communications club) and Lambda Pi Eta (the honor society of the National Communication Association). Seniors Sarah Cullison and Lauren Spivey, officers of Lambda Pi Eta, trekked to the mission for delivery of the socks in early December.

Helping Up Mission serves over 500 men a day in the Baltimore area, and the socks arrived just in time for the colder weather. Socks may appear insignificant, but feet are subject to the most wear and tear on the human body so they need protection, especially from the cold and from foot diseases. Thanks, Stevenson community, for your generosity!
