Communication News

Date: Oct 2014

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.

Susana is working  closely with all kinds of marketing and advertising analytics, using her strength in statistics to provide comprehensive data analysis. Since Susana's home is in Puerto Rico, she is able to see more of her family as well!

Her mentors include (from left) Nick Browlee, a Stevenson grad and now the Director of Admissions at the high school; Caroline Kogler, admissions assistant; and Jeremy Joseph, the Executive Director of Enrollment Management and Marketing. Courtney has assisted the team with planning for the school's recent Open House, and she has created videos and other marketing materials as well. Courtney's creativity and technological expertise is a real asset to the team.

Baier, the assistant director of special events in the Office of Communications and Public Affairs.
