Tyler is working with the departmental First-Year Seminar class, helping to arrange the class' outings and activities, including a day-long trip to Philadelphia. Tyler also attends class with the first-year students and is currently developing a marketing video for the department.

We recently heard from Christina Kemp, one of our May, 2014, BizComm graduates, who has let us know that she left her local PR job to move to Miami and begin work for Palace and Le Blanc Resorts, 5-star resorts located in Mexico.  Her job is to help travel agents in her territory (Maryland, DC, Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina) sell Palace Resorts. She's a presentation resource to agents, taking them on trips to the resort and providing them with any marketing materials and education they need.

She writes, "It wasn't something I expected, but I'm very excited for the opportunity -- not to mention, I'm required to travel to our resorts at least five times a year. Thanks to the whole business communication department, I'm well equipped for the job! I know I'll be doing a lot of presentations, so thanks for all of the preparation!"
Best of luck, Christina, and keep in touch! Here she is, in the photo on the left, with Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus.

Nicolette Stoner (seated) is interning with the department of business communication at Stevenson. She writes press releases, works on the departmental blog, performs research for faculty members in the department, helps to plan and execute events, and works in tandem with other interns and the First-Year Seminar. From week to week, her work varies widely but always helps to support the department. Here she is seen with department chair Chip Rouse, her primary supervisor.

Lanie helps in event planning, programming, and community outreach, and on the creative side as well.

The department of Business Communication in the School of Design had a splendid time at Homecoming in October, 2014. Lots of alums returned to visit, and we enjoyed the babies in the School of Design as well. Here in photos courtesy of Chris Reed, department chair of film and video, are some of the day's highlights, including pictures of students who returned for a visit.
