Communication News

A wonderful retirement party to celebrate the end of a career at Stevenson University for assistant professor Christine Noya was the highlight of Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018. Former faculty and staff, as well as many alums, came back to say farewell, and many current faculty, staff and friends were on hand to enjoy the festivities. Dr. Elliot Hirshman presented Professor Noya with a parting gift along with some words of congratulations and celebration, and Susan Gorman, Ph.D. and provost, thanked Chris for her 33 years of service. Amanda Hostalka, dean of the school of Design, and Nadene Vevea, associate dean and chair of communication programs, also expressed their gratitude for Chris' many contributions to the department and the university. Faculty members Chris Roberts, Alex Hooke, Chip Rouse, Laurel Moody and Alexander Boulton shared some insights about Chris' years at Villa Julie College/Stevenson University, and her family was well represented during the party. Congratulations, Chris. We will all miss you! (Photos from SU Flickr)

The department of Business Communication faculty are looking forward to seeing lots of current students and alums at the Homecoming tailgate on the morning of Saturday, October 20 from 9-11:30 a.m. in the south parking lot at Owings Mills North. Parking is free, but space is limited and available on a first come, first served basis beginning at 8:30 a.m.

We hope you are making a plan to come back and visit with faculty and friends for this festive Homecoming!

Our Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, alum Mackenzie Wieder, spent a bit of time in her last post considering what she misses most.
 
"The trail has definitely taught me to appreciate the little things. I can’t wait for outfit options... I can’t wait to put on sweat pants and a big cotton T-shirt and just be warm and cozy. I can’t wait to look in my closet and see all my shoes! Everything needs to be functional out here and I want clothes that are fashionable.
 
I can’t wait until I no longer have to ration my toilet paper. I don’t want to count out three squares per poop so I don’t run out before the next time I can resupply... I can’t wait for trash cans. At my house we have one in pretty much every room. Which means I only need to carry my trash a couple feet instead of tens of miles into the next town.
 
I can’t wait to grocery shop and buy food in bulk. I love grocery shopping; it is one of my joys in life, and I hate that I can only look at single serving, lightweight, calorie dense, nonperishable foods on trail. I want to eat eggs for breakfast or cereal and milk with fruit; I want to eat salad every day for lunch... and I want foods that require more than just adding water for dinner. I can’t wait until I am able to satisfy whatever craving I have within hours of me getting that craving.

At the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey, Business Communication alum Brittany Bangert, an employee at CITGO Petroleum Corporation, joined Rebuilding Together Houston in a rebuilding event and volunteer celebration in Houston on August 25. Rebuilding Together Houston is an organization that provides free home repairs to low-income elderly, veterans, people with disabilities and families impacted by natural disasters.

"Members of TeamCITGO, the company's Houston-based, employee-driven volunteer group, joined community volunteers for the day-long rehabilitation project," according to a news release provided by CITGO. Brittany's service efforts were strengthened during her years at Stevenson University. (Image from LinkedIn)
