Business Communication senior Taylor Murphy, a contributing editor to The Odyssey Online, writes about what graduation means to him after his journey through Stevenson.
Taylor writes, "I am proud of myself for going through all the years of school and finally getting a degree. Then on to the real world. Graduation is a good time to ... reflect on all the hard work you have done to get here. Many of us never think about how we got to this point, but you should never forget how much was sacrificed to get you to this point."
The Odyssey Online is a publishing and social media blog site that "democratizes content, giving people the opportunity to share what’s most important to them and their communities, enriching everyone with broader, more honest perspectives on topics they care about." College students especially contribute to the site.

Caroline, thanks for sharing your experience with Stevenson University!
Former Business Communication adjunct faculty member and Loyola Blakefield graduate Jim “Snuffy” Smith was inducted as a contributor into the Baltimore Catholic Basketball League May 3, 2018, at Turf Valley Resort.
The Baltimore Catholic League is one of the most prominent boys basketball leagues in the country.
Smith became league’s first commissioner in 1988 and, according to the Baltimore Sun, "during his five-year stint created the annual awards luncheon, formed the tournament committee and initiated the idea of soliciting sponsors for the tournament." Smith also played and coached college and high school basketball before retiring from the sports arena and joining the ranks of stellar SU public speaking teachers in the department of Business Communication.
