Business Communication News

Date: Oct 2015

Congratulations to the Business Communication First-Year Seminar students who are ALL winners in the eyes of the department! Their terrific sculpture garden, the Beltway of Careers, included many details about some of our alumni who are working professionally in a variety of fields. Great job, team!

Senior Danish Masih never really knew the demands of professional, published writing until his internship with Jack Gilden, creator of the website Divorce Circus. Gilden, a marketing strategist and branding and messaging expert, works with Danish writing and editing articles that examine the topic of divorce from a myriad of viewpoints. Danish's writing skills are being put to the test as he researches and writes articles for the website.

On October 23, BizComm professor Heather Harris conducted an Escalation Workshop on behalf of the OneLove Foundation for Stevenson students in RISE (Reach out, Inspire, Strengthen, Empower). The workshop was designed to increase awareness of intimate partner violence among college students.
 
OneLove was founded in memory of Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia student, who was beaten to death by her boyfriend in 2010 just before her graduation.  Dr. Harris was introduced to the program through her work as a board member of the Women's Law Center of Maryland, and she is one of a number of trained Escalation facilitators on campus including BizComm assistant professor Chris Noya.

Senior Colby Giacubeno was invited by 105.7 "The Fan" radio hosts Scott Garceau and Jeremy Conn to chat with them live about his work interviewing NBA basketball players and his interest in all things basketball. The show airs from 2-6 p.m. weekdays, and they have invited Colby back to talk with them once the season gets under way. Congratulations, Colby! We know you're pursuing a sports writing career, and this is a great step forward!

Seniors Colby Giacubeno (left in the photo) and Mario Amaya are interning this semester under the able direction of assistant sports information director Samantha Murray in Stevenson's Office of Athletics. Colby's interest in basketball and writing are combining to offer him opportunities to write articles for the Stevenson athletics website, and Mario's passion for all things soccer has given him the chance to write, spot, and assist with statistics for Stevenson's two NCAA soccer teams. The two seniors are fortunate that they can combine their business communication skills with their love of sports. Here, they pose for a photo with their mentor in the SU press box.
