What a night it was for the BizComms who attended the annual Baltimore Business Journal's "Book of Lists" gala at the Center Club in Baltimore on Thursday night, Feb. 5, 2015.  The 10 Business Communication students joined professors Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse as guests of the BBJ for the celebration, and after their concierge duties were finished, the students were given the chance to mingle and network with the 500+ guests in attendance. Stevenson University was one of the sponsors of the event, and several of Stevensons's administration and staff also attended the gala. The students in the top left photo included Sam Schaeffer, Lanie Swanhart,  Jen Antonelli, Matthew Perry, Ashley Mil, Samantha Hauf, Tara Shishmanian, Leanne Magyar,  Alex Parker, and Conrad Ellis.
