Communication News

Date: Feb 2018

Found this terrific positive message on Facebook courtesy of one of our Business communication faculty members who also happens to be an alum of SU. Maya Shipley Tyler offers a healthy dose of motivation to readers -- and is equally motivational to the students at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School where she works!

Business Communication alum Nicholas Farano ’12 was selected among seven Americans to participate in the Professional Fellow Program Outbound Exchange in Egypt from Feb 10-21. He sent this photo during his travels. Grateful to Hands Across the Nile Development Services, Inc., for Nick's amazing experience. (Photo courtesy of Nick Farano)

Professor Stephanie Verni and her Sports Communication class were treated to a visit on Feb. 19 from a former colleague of the professor's from her days at the Baltimore Orioles. Jack Gilden, former writer for Orioles Magazine, and author of the upcoming sports book about Johnny Unitas and Don Shula called "Collision of Wills," served as as a guest speaker for the class. Gilden is a long-time friend of the Business Communication major, having served as an internship supervisor for several students in the major, and has been a writing mentor of great importance to them.

We recently heard from BizComm alum Courtney Hastings (see inset photo above), who writes to us:

"Every year our local community college hosts a day-long social media conference that consists of break out sessions to choose from on different topics relating to social media. During lunch they have a panel of flash talks and a question-and-answer session with professionals, and they also have a keynote speaker. There are typically 400-500 people, and it has been sold out for the past few years.

This year I was asked to be a breakout session presenter at the conference, and I spoke on creating a social media plan. It was 50 minutes, and I went over what should be included in a plan.

In the spring, the college also offers a non-credit social media certificate with 6 classes, and I have been asked to teach the social media plan course for that as well. I am very excited! I had a great time at the conference. It was wonderful to network with so many talented professionals and I learned a lot from the sessions I was able to attend!"

Way to go, Courtney! So proud of you. We also know this wasn't your first conference presentation, right?
