Eight Stevenson students attended the Eastern Communication Association conference in March, 2018, both as research participants and as student workers, along with four faculty members. They had taken on the ECA as a client in the fall term of 2017, working with Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus helping to plan the five-day conference in Pittsburgh. Most of the students were Business Communication majors, and two studied film and video. Watch the video here that chronicles their "exceptional experiences."
