Communication News

Date: Apr 2016

The first annual Experiential Expo that showcased a wide variety of experiential learning experiences included two Business Communication tables featuring students involved in classroom experiences. Students in the Event Planning and Advanced Event Planning classes were happy to talk with visitors about their experiences in planning events both on  and off campus. On the left, these students included Kaitlyn Rollyson, Corrin Harris, Emma Ragon and Kim Hahr, who all participated in the events.

On the right, student editors of The Villager, including Conrad Ellis and Hayley Jacobs,  spoke with guests about their participation in the development of the new digital site and their subsequent editorial work. All of the students agreed that they had benefited from their experiential learning classes.

Congratulations to the newest class of Lambda Pi Eta inductees. This 2016 group held their induction ceremony on April 23 as the officers swore in 29 new members and handed out honor cords and pins in front of their families, friends and faculty. Dean Amanda Hostalka welcomed the attendees, and Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, moderator of the organization, opened the ceremony before turning it over to the officers, who explained the history and mission of the organization that serves as the honor society of the National Communication Association.

Author Jack Gilden, of Jack Gilden Marketing, was the keynote speaker and was introduced by his intern and new inductee Kelsey Marden. The outgoing officers included Lanie Swanhart, Chloe Redmond, Erin Schapiro and Megan Donahue. Congratulations to all the LPH members.

Senior Megan McSwain is interning this semester under the supervision of Stephanie Verni, professor of Business Communication at Stevenson. Megan has assisted in a variety of tasks including research for course presentation, social media for the Eastern Communication Association convention, preparation of lesson plans for teaching assistance, and a variety of other departmental design tasks. Megan has been a tremendous asset to the department during her time as an intern.

Graduate student Samantha Perillo and junior Kristen Brooks, both Business Communication majors, are enjoying their first season playing on Stevenson's Division III sand volleyball team. At Stevenson's only home meet of the inaugural season, the two took a minute in the shade adjacent to the new courts to prepare for their next set. Most of the team's games have been played against Division I and II teams in the relatively new NCAA sport. Sophomore Lauren Weaver also joins the two representing the department on the team.

The department of Business Communication was ready for student visitors and their families during the final Admission Open House of the semester. Though the infamous Candy Bar treats had waned, the department was nevertheless ready to present guests with some sweet  souvenirs of their visit. Freshman Lauren Novsak was on hand to help out the faculty for the event.
