Three business communication faculty members who participate in the "Faculty in the Halls" program -- Leeanne Bell McManus, Christine Noya, and Chip Rouse -- put on their aprons along with nursing professor Laurel Moody to serve up a Thanksgiving dinner for the first-year residents in Western Run and Patapsco Halls. They were aided by Sarah Mansfield, the AVP of Residence Life, and resident directors Jason Summers and Evan Huckfeldt. Turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn and pumpkin pie teased the palates of over 140 guests during the evening of Nov. 21. The event was held in the Ratcliffe Center, and a special shout out goes to all the resident assistants who were on hand to serve up the tasty meal. Happy holidays!

The department of Business Communication was busy at this year's National Communication Association convention in Philadelphia. Faculty members (l-r) Stephanie Verni, Chip Rouse and Leeanne Bell taught a short course on their new textbook, "Event Planning: Communicating Theory and Practice." Attendees included event planning teachers, professionals in the field of event planning, and members of hospitality departments.

Dr. Heather Harris and Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus participated in NCA's Legislative Assemblies, and Dr. Harris presented in a panel called "Communicating Civic Callings: Muted, Marginalized, and Magnificent Black Women’s Voices," which was chaired by Dr. Deric Greene.  Dr. Bell McManus also participated in Eastern Communication Association Executive Council meetings and presented on a panel titled "Heeding the Call: Promoting Civic Engagement with Communication Ethics Activities and Resources forAny Class." She also continued her work with the Communication Ethics division of NCA. Dr. Nadene Vevea, associate dean of the communication programs at Stevenson, also attended the convention.

Congratulations to all the members of the department.

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!

When asked by members of M.I.L.E. (Stevenson's Male Initiative Leadership and Excellence program) to help out at their cookout in the Quad on Saturday night, Oct. 15, three members of the Business Communication faculty happily agreed. Stephanie Verni, Chris Noya and Chip Rouse took time out from flipping burgers and handing out hotdogs to strike a pose with the M.I.L.E. members who invited them to help: Jarret Bragg and Eddie Bennett. The evening was filled with good food, music, and lots of conversation throughout the event. (Thanks to Stephanie Verni for the photo)
