Communication News

Business Communication alum Michelle Larkin (class of 2014) checked in from her job as a member of the Business Development team at Walt Disney World in Orlando. Her job included finding and pursuing new sponsors for the Walt Disney Company there. Michelle longed for a writing-focused career, similar to a previous job she had held at the Orlando resort, shown in the photo.
 
"I've been at my happiest when I'm being paid to write, so it only made sense ...when I found the National Mango Board on LinkedIn, ... I interviewed two weeks ago, and was offered the job last week," wrote Michelle. As their marketing specialist, she will write and manage social media and blog content, while supporting their new marketing strategy for 2018.
 
The department of Business Communication teaches our students to follow their dreams and pursue their passion -- so congratulations, Michelle, for doing just that! It's hard to leave a career behind -- especially at Walt Disney World -- but saying hello to something new often opens wonderful and surprising doors.

Stevenson University Business Communication junior Christina Favata, the promotions director at SUTV and Wild Stang Radio, has implemented a new segment on Wild Stang Radio called "15 Minutes of Fame."

The innovative program will allow students and staff time on the radio to showcase their particular talents. The segment is open to the SU community and all can get a chance to share. Contact Christine through WSR for your chance to shine! She's shown here in the photo helping out during first-year move-in and orientation.

The department of Business Communication welcomed benefactor and friend Ronald M. Shapiro on Tuesday, Nov. 14, to give the 10th annual Shapiro/Rouse lecture. In a conversation with the audience, Shapiro spoke about the coincidences and twists life can take, urging students to be ready for those surprising or unexpected happenstances. Using his own life story as illustration, Shapiro explained that predicting the path one's career will take is often next to impossible.

Shapiro, an expert negotiator and sports agent, as well as an attorney and best-selling author, along with his wife Kathryn, endowed the lecture series a decade ago in honor of associate professor Chip Rouse, who shares the lecture's name with the Shapiros. Through the years, the lecture has hosted those in the Maryland-area business world including Kevin Byrne, senior vice president of the Baltimore Ravens; and Steve Battista, senior vice president of Under Armour's creative division, among others.
