In the second Lunch Lessons of the semester, the department of Business Communication welcomed three alumni guests who spoke with the students about their paths from Stevenson (or Villa Julie College) to where they are today. Lauren Humphries (left) currently works as the marketing manager for the LUNGevity Foundation, having moved to that position from her former spot at Towson University as the coordinator of marketing and special events for campus recreation. Julia Pettingill Webster, CPSM, (center) now works as the senior marketing coordinator at RK&K, a multi-discipline civil engineering consulting firm. Jake Quimby (right) works at Stevenson University as a communications specialist in the Office of Admissions, where he assists in developing, writing, and designing recruitment communications, including print and digital media.

The alums spoke about their careers and offered some advice to the 12 students attending the catered luncheon.

The BizComm First-Year Seminar students had a terrific time on their Sept. 19 trip to Philidelphia. Stops there included Constitution Hall, the National Museum of American Jewish History, Independence Hall, and the Philadelphia African American Museum, as well as Love Park, and the famed steps Rocky Balboa climbed in triumph. Here, the group disembarks from their coach after the long day. The six full-time faculty members in Business Communication, as well as two departmental interns -- Nicolette Stoner and Tyler Turk -- accompanied the first-year students.

Several BizComms attended Career Services' recent "Senior Seminar," a workshop designed to get the seniors career-ready through panel discussions, interviews and other experiential learning activities. Graduate Alex Weitz (in the photo on the left) joined the group to offer tips for career readiness and the job search. Included (from left) are Weitz, Kiara Reed, Donnuelle Durham, Sean Waag, Allie Nelson, Ike Williams, Alyssa Yuan, Taylor Thompson, Nicolette Stoner and Sam Schaeffer.

Stevenson women's volleyball senior Samantha Perillo was named the Commonwealth Conference Player of the Week for the week on September 15, 2014, according to gomustangsports.com. Perillo serves as the team's libero, and is wearing her signature pink jersey in the photograph.

This is Perillo's first career conference Player of the Week honor. She is a two-time All-American and two-time first team all-conference honoree. She is also Stevenson's career digs leader, surpassing the 2,000 career-dig mark with 2,028 as of 9/15/14.

Perillo serves as the team's captain, and is a student assistant in sports information. A member of Who's Who Among students in American Universities and Colleges, she is also a member of Lambda Pi Eta, the honor society of the National Communication Association. Congratulations, Samantha! (Photo courtesy of gomustangsports.com)

BizComm's First-Year Seminar is busy planning their excursion to Philadelphia on Friday, Sept. 19. The trip departs early in the morning and returns around dinner time -- a full day of learning!

Traveling with their six full-time faculty members, the students will have lunch together in the middle of the day and then return to more sightseeing.

While there, the students will visit the National Constitution Center, the Philadelphia African American Museum, the National Museum of American Jewish History and Independence Hall. They will return to Stevenson to work on group projects that focus on their journey and their responses to it.  (Photo from http://anea09postcards.blogspot.com)
