Congratulations to the following Business Communication interns who are working during Fall, 2018 ,under the direction of Sonya Lawyer, director of School of Design internships.
In an event co-sponsored by Residence Life's Faculty in the Halls and the Office of Student Affairs, students in Lambda Pi Eta, the honor society of the National Communication Association, participated in a discussion about the intercultural differences between Halloween celebrations and those of Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. Afterwards, they enjoyed decorating skeleton cookies -- and then eating them up! Business Communication faculty members Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse, Faculty in the Halls for Western Run Hall, also participated in the event, along with Tiffany Sanchez, the vice president of Student Affairs, and other Faculty in the Halls mentors Laurel Moody and Romas Laskauskas.
First-year, transfer and honor society students from the Business Communication department joined other First-Year Seminar classes and clubs during "Mustangs Make a Difference Day" on Friday, Oct. 12, in the Garrison Quad. The Business Communication students and faculty members were raising money for cancer research through the sale of hugs and other goodies.
Service is a key component of The Stevenson Way, and the participating students enjoyed getting to meet others in their major while making a difference.
Pictured to the left in the first two photos are some of the students who participated in the event, and the bottom photo shows the organizing team who put together the yearly event, including two BizComms, Caroline Izzi and Lauren Novsak.

Business Communication professors Stephanie Verni and Chip Rouse attended "Unscripted," a book talk by noted author and journalist Mitch Albom, at Towson University on Oct. 10, 2018. The event, sponsored by the Baltimore Sun Media Group, drew a sold-out crowd, and who should greet the faculty members as they arrived other than BizComm alum Alaina Maracotta, who is one of the event planners for the Baltimore Sun. The two professors not only got to spend some time catching up with Alaina, but also received a signed copy of Albom's new book, "The Next Person You Meet in Heaven," a sequel to his best-seller, "The Five People You Meet in Heaven."
