It was a wonderful trip to Philadelphia for some BizComm students and faculty for the annual Eastern Communication Association convention, where they presented research material on panels, served as panel chairs, responded to student and faculty papers, attended sessions, met other students and colleagues, and planned for the 2016 convention to be held in Baltimore. In the photos above, senior Courtney Hastings (far left on the panel) spoke on a Lambda Pi Eta panel about Stevenson University's chapter; the four student attendees -- Lanie Swanhart, Megan McSwain, Peighton Perrone, and Courtney Hastings -- take a minute at the Undergraduate Scholars Conference luncheon to pose together; Courtney Hastings with Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, Stevenson's Lambda Pi Eta moderator; and finally all the SU attendees, left to right: junior Megan McSwain, Associate Professor Stephanie Verni, Associate Professor Deric Greene, senior Courtney Hastings, Associate Professor Leeanne Bell McManus, senior Peighton Perrone, junior Lanie Swanhart, and Associate Professor Chip Rouse.

The Business Communication department of Stevenson University will be well represented at this year's Eastern Communication Association convention in Philadelphia, Penn.  From April 22-26, students and departmental faculty will sit on panels, present research, attend sessions, meet with colleagues from other universities, and enjoy the conference, this year titled "Deliberation." Faculty members Deric Greene, Leeanne Bell McManus, Stephanie Verni and Chip Rouse will accompany students Courtney Hastings, Megan McSwain, Peighton Perrone and Lanie Swanhart to the event. More updates to come.

Congratulations to three of the Business Communication faculty awarded at the annual Faculty Recognition Dinner on April 21, 2015. Dr. Heather Harris won the prestigious Rose Dawson Excellence in Teaching Award, making her the third BizComm faculty member through the years to be so honored, along with Chip Rouse and Robert Ellis. Stephanie Verni and Chip Rouse were awarded faculty research grants to accompany their research into event planning in preparation for the publication of a textbook along with Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus. It was a night of celebration and pride for the department! (Photo courtesy of Stephanie Verni)

The new Business Communication inductees to Lambda Pi Eta (LPH) enjoyed a welcoming ceremony on Saturday, April 18, 2015, with their faculty, families and friends in the St. Paul Companies Pavilion.

The interim dean of the School of Design, Amanda Hostalka, greeted and congratulated them, and the organization's moderator, Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, introduced the outgoing officers: Nicolette Stoner, Courtney Hastings, Frankie Reynolds and Taylor Festerman. Keynote speaker Dr. Omowale Elson spoke about their achievements, and after the group paused for a wildly successful photo shoot amid the tulips, the officers, departmental faculty and guest departed for a celebratory dinner.

In the photos below, four roommates gathered for a photo together, and Conrad Ellis, who couldn't attend the ceremony because he was playing in an SU tennis match, caught up afterwards with his parents who had accepted his certificate and honor cords for him.

In the final photo, the entire group, including the retiring officers and Dr. Bell McManus, smile for the camera.

Congratulations to the organizers and all involved in this year's Stevenson University Scholars' Showcase. The event took place on Friday, Feb. 27, 2015, and featured Professor Lori Rubeling as the keynote speaker.
