The Business Communication department just heard from one of our alums, Kayla Wilson ('12), who is studying law at Michigan State University. She tells us that this semester she has been splitting her time between the National Labor Relations Board and Legal Services of South Central Michigan (Michigan's Legal Aid program).

"Working at both locations has given me exposure to two different legal offices, and because of that I've been able to gauge what I want in a legal career," she writes. 

Congratulations, Kayla, and we know you look forward to getting that degree!

Congratulations to Business Communication alum Chris McKneely, who, as of Nov. 21, joined the Under Armour team as a contracted production artist in the Team Sports Division at Under Armour's main headquarters in Baltimore. Chris' persistence through five years of applications,  rounds of interviews, and rigorous selection processes paid off when he accepted his dream job. Chris' internship at Lightning Wear Apparel taught him a lot about the sportswear production process, which gave him an advantage in the selection process. Way to go, Chris! (Photo from Facebook)

This year's "Steve Talks" event drew a large crowd from the School of Design, including lots of Business Communication students and alumni. Organized by the Office of Career Services under the direction of Jennifer Marin Jericho, "Steve Talks" featured Amber Atkins, head of global recruitment at IBM Design, as the keynote speaker.

Word just came in from BizComm alum (Class of 2016) Zuryna Smith, who writes that she has started a new business, Smith and Foote Communications, LLC (www.smithandfoote.com) with her friend and Stevenson graduate, Dwight Foote. The two decided to combine their talents to assist small businesses with creative and web design needs. Through strategic services the partners hope to help organizations reach short- and long-term goals with optimal support every step of the way. The Stevenson grads pride themselves on accepting challenges and welcome growth opportunities, according to their website. ​

Homecoming Day 2016 -- Saturday, October 22 -- was a blustery and bright day, perfect for welcoming back Business Communication alums and greeting current parents and students as well. The traditional nachos and cheese was the snack of the day, as faculty in the School of Design pitched in to help. A victory in the afternoon football game capped off the day!
