A hearty congratulations and thank you to the BizComms who gave up their Saturday morning to help out the department as we all welcomed the Accepted Students to campus as part of an admissions event. The BizComms were in the School of Design building, mixing and mingling with the students and their parents, answering their questions and talking about the major. We got the BizComms together for a group photo just as the event began. They are (back row, l-r) Emma Ragon, Taylor Festerman, Sam Schaeffer, Erin Smiley, Sarah Cullison, and Frankie Reynolds; (front row, l-r) Amy Sharfman, Allie Nelson, Ashley Mil, Lanie Swanhart, and Sean Waag. We couldn't have done it without them!

Stevenson University BizComm faculty and students traveled to Puerto Rico during spring break week as part of their Advanced Intercultural Communication course, taught by Dr. Deric Greene and assisted by Professor Chris Noya. They saw much of the island, including walking tours of Old San Juan, a trip to the rain forest, and a day with students and faculty at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazon (the University of the Sacred Heart). They shared stories of educational experiences with the students there, and learned much about each other's culture during the visit. In the photographs above, the BizComms  pose with the students from Puerto Rico during some of the activities.
