Business Communication News

Business Communication faculty members (l-r) Chip Rouse, Stephanie Verni and Leeanne Bell McManus presented a session about event planning at Stevenson University's student leadership development workshop, Leaderstang. Using their event planning textbook, the three faculty members spoke to students about the importance of listening to a client and developing strong interpersonal skills to help reduce anxiety when meeting someone new. The two-day workshop was sponsored by the Office of Student Activities and the Office of Residence Life.

Professors Christine Noya, Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse from the department of Business Communication are entering their fourth year as part of the "Faculty in the Halls" program. To kick off the semester for the freshmen in their residence halls, the faculty helped to plan a tailgate held on Saturday, Sept. 16. Students came out in full force, enjoying music, grilled fare, nachos, and desserts. The program is overseen by the Office of Residence Life.

The Business Communication First-Year Seminar students took some time away from campus on Friday, Sept. 16, to explore Oriole Park at Camden Yards with a "behind-the-scenes" tour and a meet and greet with four BizComm alums who work for the Orioles: Tim Pyle, Emily Maranto, Alex Parker, and Christina Zizos.

The tour included a visit to Babe Ruth's statue, a stop in the Orioles' dugout, a stint in the Press Box, and some time on the field itself, among other things. Students learned about careers with the Orioles from their alums working with the team, and then walked over to the Inner Harbor for a cruise on the Harbor and Bay. They learned about the Harbor's development and enjoyed the sun and fresh air. A project focusing on branding will follow later in the semester.

Thank you to GPS intern and Business Communication senior Emma Ragon for this great interview with the new chair of the communication programs, Dr. Nadene Vevea. Emma's interview and blog post can be found here.

Senior Emma Ragon (in the photo on the right) is in the midst of yet another internship -- this time, she is working under the direction of Cynthia Madden, communications manager for Stevenson's Graduate and Professional School Admissions team. Emma is working on content development for a new graduate audience, researching and writing content for the GPS site. She is relying on strong communication skills, both written and oral, for interviews, composition, and editing. Her work as a former Villager editor-in-chief comes in handy for this internship!
