Look what SU BizComm found in the lobby of Rockland! A display stand featuring Emily Rosenthal, a career peeer advisor and a rising junior BizComm major. Emily works one on one with students, helping them develop and shape their resumes as well as other career-focused tasks in space in Wooded Way where the offices of Career Services are housed. Congratulations, Emily, for your contributions to Career Architecture! We're so proud of you.
Students in Dr. Deric Greene's Special Topics in Communication course who traveled to Puerto Rico as part of the experiential learning component of the course presented their reflections about the intercultural experience. Through slides and oral presentations, the students reflected on their trip to Puerto Rico with Dr. Greene and Mrs. Christine Noya. They talked about their expectations for the trip, their experiences of culture shock, and their excitement at learning so much in another country. The Business Communication department is proud of their ability to articulate such insightful reflections.
Congratulations to two Business Communication seniors who received their Honors cords to wear at Commencement for their participation in and fulfillment of the requirements of Stevenson University's Honors program. Rosalie Chesley and Tara Shishmanian were among several seniors honred at the May 1 ceremony led by Dr. Virginia Iannone (right), director of the Honors program. The two students participated in a series of Honors seminars, completed a rigorous schedule of experiential learning, and maintained superior GPAs. The department of Business Communication is proud of you both!
Senior Jess Barley (right) has been accepted in the applied gerontology Master's program at Towson University beginning in May. Jess' interest in the field began with a BizComm internship in marketing at Brightview Senior Living in Bel Air, Maryland, where, among other tasks, she was given an opportunity to organize activities for the residents, and found she had a calling working directly with the seniors living there.
This chance changed her career path entirely. Jess is excited about the opportunity to learn more about aging, engagement, and senior living in the two-year degree program. Congratulations, Jess, for seeing that career architecture really can help you build for your future!
