Communication News

Senior Lauren Kiper (in the photo on the right) has learned what it takes to market a startup company. Lotsa Pizza opened its first store in the fall of 2015 near West Virginia University and hasn't looked back since. By summer, there will be 12 stores in the group. Lauren has worked with Jenna Martino, the company's marketing analyst, doing everything from market research to design creation in the brand area. She has had a hand in nearly every phase of the company's expansion.

Two of Business Communication's professors and Faculty in the Halls mentors, Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse, hosted a ChickFilA night on Thursday, April 6, 2017, for their first-year residents in Western Run Hall. The event corresponded with pre-registration preparation, so the faculty could answer any questions from the first-year students and help calm their jitters about fall schedules. It was a great success, as students found the Hall of Fame room in Caves by following the delicious scent. Many students stayed for the men's volleyball game afterwards.

Business Communication professors Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse joined the other first-year Faculty in the Halls mentors for a terrific tailgate picnic on a cold but sunny Saturday in April in the first-year residence Quad. The first-year Success Coaches joined in on the fun that included raffles, grilled picnic food, cheese nachos and dessert treats. Professors Laurel Moody, Romas Laskauskas, and Art Fifer were serving up the food, talking with the residents, and joining in the dancing.  Missing from the event (and missed as well) was Business Communication Professor Christine Noya, who was there in spirit with everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Business Communication interns have been busy preparing for their Poster Presentation to be held on Thursday, April 13, in the Rockland Banquet Hall. Working with a series of partners, the interns developed their "elevator speech" or pitch about their internship experience to share with attendees.
 

Senior Siegfried Schmidt is finishing up a year-long internship with the Gilbane Building Company under the mentorship of vice president Michael Crase. Zig's tasks have continued to include work on the marketing side, but he has also been learning the operations side of how project development occurs. Gilbane, a global integrated construction and facility management services firm located in Locust Point, is a privately held family-owned company. Here, Zig and his mentor stop in front of photos of Ravens Stadium, where the company is currently working on a few projects.
