Business Communication News

Date: Apr 10, 2017

Two of Business Communication's professors and Faculty in the Halls mentors, Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse, hosted a ChickFilA night on Thursday, April 6, 2017, for their first-year residents in Western Run Hall. The event corresponded with pre-registration preparation, so the faculty could answer any questions from the first-year students and help calm their jitters about fall schedules. It was a great success, as students found the Hall of Fame room in Caves by following the delicious scent. Many students stayed for the men's volleyball game afterwards.

Business Communication professors Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse joined the other first-year Faculty in the Halls mentors for a terrific tailgate picnic on a cold but sunny Saturday in April in the first-year residence Quad. The first-year Success Coaches joined in on the fun that included raffles, grilled picnic food, cheese nachos and dessert treats. Professors Laurel Moody, Romas Laskauskas, and Art Fifer were serving up the food, talking with the residents, and joining in the dancing.  Missing from the event (and missed as well) was Business Communication Professor Christine Noya, who was there in spirit with everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Business Communication interns have been busy preparing for their Poster Presentation to be held on Thursday, April 13, in the Rockland Banquet Hall. Working with a series of partners, the interns developed their "elevator speech" or pitch about their internship experience to share with attendees.
 

Senior Siegfried Schmidt is finishing up a year-long internship with the Gilbane Building Company under the mentorship of vice president Michael Crase. Zig's tasks have continued to include work on the marketing side, but he has also been learning the operations side of how project development occurs. Gilbane, a global integrated construction and facility management services firm located in Locust Point, is a privately held family-owned company. Here, Zig and his mentor stop in front of photos of Ravens Stadium, where the company is currently working on a few projects.
Senior Jackie Cooper (on the left in the photo) doesn't seem to mind the commute to Washington, D.C., for her internship at Boston Environmental and Contracting, Inc., in the marketing and corporate communication department. Under the mentorship of Monsio Love Joof, Jackie has been working to renovate the company's website so that it not only is more appealing, but so that it more clearly targets the company's various clients and audiences. Jackie has also produced new marketing materials for the company's communications.
