Congratulations to the Business Communication First-year Seminar under the guidance of Dr. Nadene Vevea, associate dean of communication programs, for their amazing rendition of Oriole Park at Camden Yards that won the group first place in the 2016 Lego Challenge, tied with a biochemistry construction. The students had visited Camden Yards a week before for a behind-the-scenes tour and decided to reconstruct the ballpark and the warehouse to describe their ideas of Career Architecture. The ballpark construction was complete with lights, foul poles, a scoreboard, bleachers, an infield and an assortment of players. The Business Communication first-year students worked together in an all-out effort to pay attention to every detail, including images on the warehouse of the Business Communication alums who work for the Orioles and who met the students on the tour.
Congratulations to our comrades in the Film and Moving Image First-year Seminar who took second place in the competition as well!
Congratulations to Business Communication associate professors Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse for their chapter in a recently released textbook on integrated marketing communication published by Rowman and Littlefield/Lexington Books. Their chapter focuses on ways that integrated marketing communication impacts the field of event planning. The text is edited by Jeanne M. Persuit (UNC-Wilmington) and Christina L. McDowell (University of Alaska-Anchorage).
We heard from Business Communication alum Michelle Larkin, who writes to us from Orlando about her most recent promotion:
"I found my way over to the Disney Corporate Alliance team supporting runDisney races as a permanent coordinator. We work as the go-between with our corporate sponsors and runDisney. On a normal day, I might have a brainstorming session with a company like Coca Cola about what cool things they could do at the next race or a logistic-focused event meeting with our runDisney partners. During my first week, our team flew out to Disneyland in California to work the Disneyland Half Marathon! I got to see a race firsthand from a Corporate Alliance standpoint and jump right into my new job.
