The Business Communication First-Year Seminar students took some time away from campus on Friday, Sept. 16, to explore Oriole Park at Camden Yards with a "behind-the-scenes" tour and a meet and greet with four BizComm alums who work for the Orioles: Tim Pyle, Emily Maranto, Alex Parker, and Christina Zizos.

The tour included a visit to Babe Ruth's statue, a stop in the Orioles' dugout, a stint in the Press Box, and some time on the field itself, among other things. Students learned about careers with the Orioles from their alums working with the team, and then walked over to the Inner Harbor for a cruise on the Harbor and Bay. They learned about the Harbor's development and enjoyed the sun and fresh air. A project focusing on branding will follow later in the semester.
