The department of Business Communication in the School of Design had a splendid time at Homecoming in October, 2014. Lots of alums returned to visit, and we enjoyed the babies in the School of Design as well. Here in photos courtesy of Chris Reed, department chair of film and video, are some of the day's highlights, including pictures of students who returned for a visit.

First-year students in the Business Communication department are planning their design for this year's Lego Challenge to be held on Friday, Nov. 7, in the Owings Mills gymnasium.

In previous years, the BizComm students have done an excellent job in the Lego Challenge depicting, for instance, various trips that they have gone on with their class: Washington D.C. and Annapolis. The photograph above is their vision of Annapolis.

The Lego Challenge is sponsored by the Office of Career Services and Dr. Kevin J. Manning, Stevenson's president.

Students in this fall semester's Event Planning and Publicity class planned and organized Stevenson University's first Color Run with proceeds to benefit Baltimore' House of Ruth. The students had to find food vendors, solicit participants, plan and sign the course, collect prizes, and ask for volunteers along with creating awareness around campus for the event.

The House of Ruth is a home for women and children who have been abused and need a safe place to stay. Through the registration fees and donations, the class raised over $600. A representative from the House of Ruth was on hand at the race to accept the donation.

The event planning class joined some of their volunteers for the photograph on the left. Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and two students finish the Color Run in the photo on the right.

Senior Samantha Perillo, the libero on Stevenson University's volleyball team, was one of two seniors celebrated during Senior Night on Oct. 22. The team grabbed a 3-0 win against Arcadia in a Commonwealth Conference game, and Stevenson (23-3, 7-0 MAC) hopes to maintain their perfect record since joining the Commonwealth conference two years ago. Perillo has one more conference game before advancing to the Commonwealth tournament. Here she is shown with members of her family on Senior Night.

Congratulations to junior Lanie Swanhart, a member of the SU cross country team,  and to BizComm alum Tom McGonigal ('05), who participated in the first-ever cross country race run at Stevenson University, the Twilight Tune Up. Swanhart finished the 4K in just over 16 minutes, ending as one of the top-10 finishers and helping Stevenson to a third-place finish. McGonigal, who served as an assistant cross country coach after he graduated, was thrilled to have a chance to run the course even as an alum, with a time of just over 17 minutes. Here's to you, our speedy BizComm runners! (Photos courtesy of Carol Zimmerman and Tom McGonigal)
