S'Mores with Faculty in the HallsAs the semester begins, two of the Communication department's faculty members are ready to greet the first-year students as a part of Stevenson's Faculty in the Halls program. Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse join nursing faculty member Laurel Moody as the three oversee the program in the three first-year residence halls. On Tuesday, September 17, the three planned a night of S'Mores for the new students, who came out in full force for the treats. The three faculty members hold office hours in the residence halls each week -- or offer a social or educational activity like this one!

Emma Cathy Smith as drum majorCongratulations to Business Communication senior Emma Cathy Smith, who not only sang the national anthem and the SU alma mater at this year's convocation ceremony, but now we learn that she was chosen drum major of Stevenson's Marching 100. The band has already enjoyed a week of band camp, preparing to play at convocation and at all home football games, among other events.

The drum major's job is to lead the band during rehearsals and in performance, carrying out the instructions of band director Mark Lortz and other staff members. She has also served in another leadership position as editor-in-chief of The Villager in 2018-2019. Congratulations, EmC! (Photo from Facebook)
