Senior Alaina Peterson (second from the right in this photo taken in Galway) traveled to Ireland in March 2014 with 20 other students in an Advanced Intercultural Communication class, and fell instantly in love with the west coast city of Galway.

Sitting in on an information session at the National University of Galway convinced her that a semester of study in Ireland would be a perfect complement to her Business Communication major. She applied to the university and was accepted, so this fall, Alaina will study marketing at NUI Galway, living in shared housing and walking the cobblestone streets of Galway as she experiences the culture there for four months, earning credits towards her SU degree. Stay in touch, Alaina!

The Business Communication department has planned its first meeting of the year for all those teaching Introduction to Public Speaking --12 faculty members, inlcuding adjuncts. Tuesday, August 5, is the date for the dinner/meeting beginning at 6 p.m. on the Greenspring campus. At the start of each term, the Public Speaking faculty meet to share ideas and brainstorm for new ways to approach the teaching of speech. It's also a way for the new faculty members to meet the rest of the department. In the photo are three BizComm faculty members: Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, Bob Ellis, and Stephanie Verni.
