The communication department welcomed S.A.F.E. Management's Hunter McIntyre (in the photo, right), the director of operations in Baltimore, as the 12th annual Shapiro/Rouse lecturer at Stevenson University. He was introduced by Business Communication alum Will Beatson (left). Hunter spoke to a crowd in the Claire Moore room on Nov. 19, 2019, about the importance of communication in the business forum, and was helped with examples from Will as well. Both men were welcomed by Chip Rouse (center), associate professor of business communication, and everyone in the crowd was treated to a copy of Perfecting Your Pitch by Ron Shapiro, a book that Hunter worked on and spoke about during his talk, and which he gave away as a gift.
The series was begun 12 years ago through a generous donation by Ron Shapiro -- negotiator, agent, attorney, author. The department of business communication is grateful for Ron's generous spirit.
Business Communication interns Yina Dong (left) and Andrew Nagel (right) participated in an internship panel on Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, organized by the School of Design's internship director, Sonya Lawyer. The students on the panel (there were more than the photo shows) spoke about their own internships to an audience of current interns, faculty, employers, and students looking for a position. The two communication interns spoke about how they found their site, and what they learned while they were there. The event was held in the Rockland banquet room and was followed by the traditional poster session.
Students, faculty, and staff members joined Professor Stephanie Verni for a Travel Writing Workshop designed to enhance their ability to write about their travels. Verni has taught courses in travel writing in which she requires students in the class to travel somewhere and write about it, in both descriptive and reflective forms. The workshop was co-sponsored by the Stevenson library and held in the Learning Commons lab as a part of the Arts Alive! initiative.
The School of Design's INTERNSHIP SHOWCASE is set for Friday, Nov. 15 at 1:30 p.m. in the Rockland banquet room. All are invited. Questions? Contact Sonya Lawyer, internship coordinator, School of Design (Flyer from Stevenson University portal)
