Getting ready for Monster Jam at Royal Farms ArenaLooks like Business Communication major Isabella Maxey has been busy at her internship with Edie Brown & Associates, a premier public relations firm in Baltimore.

Prior to the closure of large-venue sites, Isa was busy at Baltimore's Royal Farms Arena preparing for the annual Monster Jam! Here she takes a photo with the Arena's public relations and events staff, as well as with her mentor, Edie Brown. Isa bundled up is at far right, and Edie is third from the left.

In demand skillsAccording to Linked In, at left are the top in-demand skills for the workplace. Notice that nearly all of them are directly applicable to the curriculum in the Business Communication and Comm Studies majors!

But according to a July article in Techwell by Owen Gotimer, we must stop referring to these skills as "soft." These soft skills really aren’t so soft after all. Why not?

1. "Soft skills are hard to learn.

2. Soft skills require continuous improvement.

3. Soft skills are transferable. 

4. Soft skills will distinguish man from machine.

5. Soft skills are the focal point of agile."

These are important human skills that are demanded of the successful employee - so let's stop calling them "soft."

Hoem page of The VillagerWhen Stevenson classes were canceled for March 11-13, the resourceful Villager staff found a way to collaborate from a variety of sites off campus and get new articles published on the online site,

Through the use of chat on GroupMe, and the remarkable versatility of WordPress, the staff was able to meet their deadline with professionalism and cooperation. Congrats to Jess Lewis, editor-in-chief; senior editors Andrew Nagel and Derek Tangorra, and staffers Marriah Boyd, Tyler Burton, Annie Smyth-Hammond, Jevan Leyh, Joseph Mauler, Liam Walsh, and Brittany Whitley.

Stevenson Business Communication alum Maura Kovalcik Winebrenner, '13, who is the brand marketing manager for the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland, stands beside one of her products on display. She works to develop and implement integrated marketing strategies for the Scouting organization, whose council "was established in 1962 and serves 20,000 girls in 2,000 troops and groups in Baltimore City, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties with the help of nearly 9,000 dedicated and committed adult volunteers," according to the GSCM website.
