Business Communication students were able to purchase over 250 pairs of socks during their "Socktober" collection month to donate to the men at Helping Up Mission in Baltimore. The Mission, located at 1029 E. Baltimore Street, "provides hope to people experiencing homelessness, poverty or addiction by meeting their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs." 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. Here, senior Kristen Brooks helps with the drop off to the Mission. Thanks, BizComms, for your generosity! (Photo by Kylie Handler)

Three business communication faculty members who participate in the "Faculty in the Halls" program -- Leeanne Bell McManus, Christine Noya, and Chip Rouse -- put on their aprons along with nursing professor Laurel Moody to serve up a Thanksgiving dinner for the first-year residents in Western Run and Patapsco Halls. They were aided by Sarah Mansfield, the AVP of Residence Life, and resident directors Jason Summers and Evan Huckfeldt. Turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn and pumpkin pie teased the palates of over 140 guests during the evening of Nov. 21. The event was held in the Ratcliffe Center, and a special shout out goes to all the resident assistants who were on hand to serve up the tasty meal. Happy holidays!
