Congratulations to the December 2016 Business Communication graduates -  all 18 of them! They gathered for the traditional pre-Commencement photograph with their faculty members on Dec. 19, 2016. A special kudos goes out to Emma Ragon, who was awarded the Orsia F. Young Leadership Award, and to Emily Rosenthal, who won the President's Award for Scholarly and Creative Achievement. Good luck as you all move on, and stay in touch! (Photo courtesy of Stephanie Verni)

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!
