Just about two months into her thru hike of the Appalachian Trail, Business Communication alumni Mackenzie Wieder wrote a post about one of the biggest challenges she has faced thus far: exhaustion. After one particularly daunting 19-mile day, Mackenzie found herself thinking about giving up, but instead, she collapsed into a 12-hour sleep in her tent and woke up feeling more optimistic. She writes:

That day was scary. I think I can attribute most of my bad mood to exhaustion. It is easy to get worn out by hiking all day, every day, which is why it is so important for me to remember the importance of a good night’s sleep, eating semi-healthy, and listening to my body when it says to slow down. I have already put so much time, money, and effort into this thru-hike and I am determined to make it to Mt. Katahdin. Like I’ve said before, I have found joy out here. I seriously love hiking but now I truly understand why people get off trail. It is nice to remember that for every bad day out here there are about 50 good ones; at least that is my ratio so far. So I will keep on trekking.

Keep on trekking, Mackenzie! We are rooting for you! (Photo from Mackenzie Wieder's Instagram)

Congratulations to the May 2018 Business Communication graduates who celebrated Commencement on May 17, 2018. Enjoy some graduation photographs!

Business Communication alumni and former adjunct professor Cari Cramer Pierce writes on Facebook about her new space. Congratulations, Cari!

Three and a half years ago, I opened a training studio. It was a great space. It was an important step. It was a commitment to my community that needed better training options and better trainers. It was the start of a journey.

Over the years, I’ve worked tirelessly to invest in my education. To ask questions. To seek answers. To follow the science, the evidence. To be a better trainer every day. I can honestly say, without ego, I’m crushing the game on this front.

Yesterday, this journey passed a tremendous benchmark in the opening of our new studio location at 19 Liberty Street in Westminster. It’s more the studio I imagined 3 1/2 years ago and yet so much more yet! It’s good stuff. And good stuff will happen here. I’m honored and humbled to be entrusted by my clients to help them grow and change.

The journey to total health and wellness can be challenging. It’s a puzzle of many pieces, exercise and nutrition being only two of those components. If your trainer or gym aren’t talking to you about ALL of the pillars of total health, maybe it’s time to FLIP YOURS.

Keep doing what you’re doing; keep getting what you’re getting. Or...

Change your thinking. Change your actions. Change your life.

"What I love about my Business Communication degree is that I can do ANYTHING!" How often we hear this from our students. Is it true? A brief survey of some of our graduates tells the tale!
