Alums speak about NSA careers

Two Stevenson University Business Communication graduates, Julia Cooke and Brittaney Koehler, came back on Sept. 26, 2019, to speak with students in one of Dr. Leeanne Bell's classes, as well as to a host of other students who heard about the visit and wanted to learn more about careers in the National Security Agency. Both alums work in communications careers at NSA in Fort Meade, Md., though in different areas of the agency. They offered application advice and spoke about the benefits of working for the agency.

3. Everybody Writes by Ann Handley
             

Business Communication professor and novelist Stephanie Verni captivated her audience on Thursday, Nov. 2, as she presented a workshop on writing and self-publishing in the Claire Moore Room in Garrison Hall at Stevenson University as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The event was hosted by the SU Library and '47 House, the communication club. Speaking to over 30 guests, and providing them with coffee and donuts, Professor Verni walked her eager audience through the process of starting a novel and getting it ready for publication. In one of the photos above, Verni (in black) is pictured with librarian Bria Sinnott, who shares an interest in #NaNoWriMo. Congratulations to Professor Verni and all the audience participants!
