Business Communication News
"Goodbyes are sad things. You leave behind dreams that you’ve worked to make real, friends that you’ve suffered to love and sometimes a quiet security that was built with half a lifetime. On the road, you move along and leave your efforts behind you in the dust, knowing deep inside that you will never find them exactly the same again.
Often you spend too much time looking back and miss something up ahead. But there’s little use in trying to avoid the loneliness and anxiety that go with you when you move on… for that is life, and it is a certainty.
The road teaches you to accept goodbyes as a part of saying hello to things that are newer and often better. It also teaches you also that what was loved and what was learned in the past can never be forgotten.
On the road, and in life everywhere, you spend much time learning, wondering and, sometimes, remembering." (from Dreams from the Road)
Congratulations and best of everything to our amazing graduates!
The three Business Communication faculty members who also serve as "Faculty in the Halls" mentors -- Christine Noya, Leeanne Bell McManus, and Chip Rouse -- enjoyed a year-end tailgate cookout with their first-year residents in Western Run, Susquehanna, and Patapsco residence halls as the semester wound down. Overseeing the program is Jeff Kelly, dean of students, and the other faculty mentors in the initiative include Laurel Moody, Art Fifer and Romas Laskauskas.
Students in the public relations, advertising, marketing and communications club, '47 House, teamed up with Faculty in the Halls in Western Run Hall to organize a great kickoff to finals week with an early morning treat of coffee and donuts on May 9, 2016. Professors Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse, the mentors for Western Run, were happy to help the students organize and distribute sustenance to residents in Western Run, Susquehanna, Patapsco, Herring Run and Wakefield Halls as their Monday exams began. This activity has become part of the Faculty in the Halls tradition.
