Stevenson's crack team of videographers has once again concocted a terrific glimpse of SMILE move-in day at the university. Take a look at the video by clicking on the picture below -- and can you count the 11 BizComms in the video?
Business Communication News
Students in the department of Business Communication were busy at the university's Welcome Picnic on Wednesday, Aug. 26, staffing tables for various clubs and organizations, and using their communication skills to reach out to those who had questions about joining in. Even our alums (employed at the university, of course) were happy to chat with passers-by!
Business Communication Professor Heather Harris traveled to Spain for five weeks this summer in order to teach a Special Topics course in Media and Culture for students in the Criminal Justice program, and one independent studies student.

BizComm grad Alaina Peterson ('15) has had a love for distant shores for a long time, made even more pronounced by a trip to Ireland with the department in the spring of 2014, and a subsequent semester of study at the National University of Ireland in Galway in the fall of 2104.
Since graduation, Alaina has accepted a position with STS TRAVEL, which, according to its website, "was founded in 1984 by two Cornell University graduates who shared one common goal: to specialize in the marketing and operation of travel services designed specifically for students." Since 1984, STS has handled the travel plans of over a half of million student travelers.
Alaina works at STS as a travel agent for student trips, and her intenship work with The Travel Boutique gave her extra experience during her job search. Congratulations, Alaina! Not only do you get to travel, but now you will get to help plan others' trips as well! In the photo, that's Alaina (on the right) with a travel friend at Ireland's Cliffs of Moher.
Alyssa Coster '08 is thrilled with the success of her Charm City Mobile Boutique, a trailer-turned-retail store that has been making appearances at events throughout the state of Maryland, based in Baltimore. From St. Mary's county to Bel Air, Alyssa and her trendy boutique take center stage with a line of clothing and accessories that appeal to young women of fashion. Congratulations on your entrepreneurial spirit, Alyssa, and we hope to see you back at Stevenson soon!
