Communication News

Once again, the Business Communication students from Lambda Pi Eta and '47 House pitched in during Mustangs Make a Difference Day to staff a station where students from every major could create cards to be sent to members of the Armed Forces as well as to young children with cancer. The day of service attracts leaders from many clubs and organizations who want to show their commitment to make a difference in the lives of others. Thanks for your selfless efforts!

Business Communication faculty members (l-r) Chip Rouse, Stephanie Verni and Leeanne Bell McManus presented a session about event planning at Stevenson University's student leadership development workshop, Leaderstang. Using their event planning textbook, the three faculty members spoke to students about the importance of listening to a client and developing strong interpersonal skills to help reduce anxiety when meeting someone new. The two-day workshop was sponsored by the Office of Student Activities and the Office of Residence Life.

Professors Christine Noya, Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse from the department of Business Communication are entering their fourth year as part of the "Faculty in the Halls" program. To kick off the semester for the freshmen in their residence halls, the faculty helped to plan a tailgate held on Saturday, Sept. 16. Students came out in full force, enjoying music, grilled fare, nachos, and desserts. The program is overseen by the Office of Residence Life.

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.
