Communication News

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)

Business Communication junior Lauren Aversa has begun her reporting internship at SUTV under the direction of Aaron Harris, the director of digital broadcast media, through the internship program headed by Sonya Lawyer, assistant professor and internship director in the School of Design.

Harris writes, "Lauren just did her first story  .... and it got 1100 views on Facebook, 865 on Instagram and 589 on Twitter so far."  Lauren will do one report a week, and you can see her first piece here. She joins other Business Communication majors Christine Favata and Krystal Alexis as SUTV reporters. Good luck to all this semester! (Photo from YouTube)
