Business Communication alumni and former adjunct professor Cari Cramer Pierce writes on Facebook about her new space. Congratulations, Cari!

Three and a half years ago, I opened a training studio. It was a great space. It was an important step. It was a commitment to my community that needed better training options and better trainers. It was the start of a journey.

Over the years, I’ve worked tirelessly to invest in my education. To ask questions. To seek answers. To follow the science, the evidence. To be a better trainer every day. I can honestly say, without ego, I’m crushing the game on this front.

Yesterday, this journey passed a tremendous benchmark in the opening of our new studio location at 19 Liberty Street in Westminster. It’s more the studio I imagined 3 1/2 years ago and yet so much more yet! It’s good stuff. And good stuff will happen here. I’m honored and humbled to be entrusted by my clients to help them grow and change.

The journey to total health and wellness can be challenging. It’s a puzzle of many pieces, exercise and nutrition being only two of those components. If your trainer or gym aren’t talking to you about ALL of the pillars of total health, maybe it’s time to FLIP YOURS.

Keep doing what you’re doing; keep getting what you’re getting. Or...

Change your thinking. Change your actions. Change your life.

The 109th Eastern Communication Association's conference, held in Pittsburgh April 25-29, 2018, was planned by the association's vice president, Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, who will go on to become president of the ECA for 2018-2019.  Eight students, accompanied by Business Communication faculty members Stephanie Verni and Chip Rouse, worked the conference in logistics, registration, social media, food service, and technology, in addition to presenting their work in three panels.

The eight students were Adrienne Civetti, Ben Wanaselja, Courtney Hottle, Kamica Price, Meghan Loveless, Matthew Patti, Grace Clark, and Kaya Roberts.

Bell McManus, Verni and Rouse also sat on a panel about event planning and the communication curriculum, and Verni moderated a panel about The Mill course she taught in which the ECA was a client. Master's graduate and current adjunct Michael MacFee spoke about his graduate research in the form of a poster during the graduate presentations.

Kaya Roberts presented her research on Game of Thrones, while Courtney Hottle spoke about her experiences as vice president of Lambda Pi Eta as part of a panel on student organizations.

The group enjoyed a dinner together at the top of the Duquesne Incline, Pittsburgh's authentic iconic wooden cable car climb up to the top of Mt. Washington.

Congratulations to junior Lauren Novsak, who spoke at Stevenson's Annual Endowed Scholarship Luncheon. She writes, "I was able to express my gratitude to all the donors of Stevenson University ... Fostering a culture of philanthropy among students on campus has been one of the highlights of my undergraduate career."

Lauren will serve as the Student Government Association president during the 2018-19 academic year. Her campaign stressed a campus-wide culture of philanthropy. Congratulations, Lauren!

"What I love about my Business Communication degree is that I can do ANYTHING!" How often we hear this from our students. Is it true? A brief survey of some of our graduates tells the tale!
