Communication News

Congratulations to Dr. Nadene Vevea, dean of communication programs and co-faculty (with Professor Forest Bell) of "The Mill," an interdisciplinary class that worked all semester "Stitching Maryland Together." The initiative, funded in part by PNC Bank, worked hand in hand with the Jewish Museum of Maryland and the Maryland Historical Society to shed light on Baltimore's fashion industry, past and present. "This movement exists to give fashion the platform it needs to inspire ongoing involvement," according to the movement's website. Students and faculty of the SU department of fashion design and merchandising worked with members of the Stitching Maryland Together movement and members of The Mill as they planned and hosted a gala fashion event titled “Expedition I” on May 4, 2019, at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore, Maryland.

Fashion design students exhibited their collections on the runway at Rams Head Live!, while all of the student helpers took a bow at the end. Senior BizComm Claudia Tonti also took a moment off from her managerial duties to snap a photo with her faculty members. (Photos from Facebook)

EAMC Internship announcement

Congratulations to Business Communication senior Claudia Tonti, who was recently awarded an EAMC (Events and Arena Marketing Conference) internship, a highly selective experience sponsored by the Event and Arena Marketing Conference group. Only seven students were chosen, mostly from larger universities, as shown in the announcement above. Claudia will get the opportunity to network, assist EAMC planning committee members prior to and throughout the conference with database management, survey collection, team-building activities, photography, note taking, and more.

Claudia will travel to Toronto June 11 for the conference with her Stevenson University internship site supervisor, Edie Brown, of Edie Brown and Associates, who is an EAMC Hall of Fame member. Claudia's flight, hotel, conference registration, and all other expenses have been covered through the internship award.

In 2003, the EAMC Board of Directors awarded its first internships to college students interested in the live entertainment industry. The internships provide the opportunity to attend the conference sessions and evening activities, assist committee members throughout the conference with registration and surveys, network with live entertainment executives and inquire about possible future job openings within the industry.

Join the Business Communication interns and other interns from the School of Design on Friday, April 26, 2019, from 2-4 p.m. as they talk about their internship experiences this semester. The event will include a poster session, an employer panel, and a student panel, all held in the School of Design. All are invited.
