Communication News

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. 

From my understanding, I ultimately got this job thanks to my strong communication skills and having a strong, influential network of people backing me up. I strongly believe the skills I gained in college helped me get to where I am today. There were so many times where I didn't want to learn how to network, because it's not fun or easy. But it's a huge part of how I got this job, and I'm really thankful that you pushed me to work on those skills. I'm excited to see what my future holds, and I will always keep you up-to-date on how business communication has set me up for success."
Congratulations, Michelle! We are so proud of you and happy for your success doing what you love.

Congratulations to junior Business Communication major Danny Williams, who was named the Middle Atlantic Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Sunday, Sept. 25. He set SU program records at the Sept. 24 game against  FDU-Florham including six passing touchdowns and 338 passing yards in the 54-15 victory over the New Jersey school. The quarterback threw just one interception in the win, improving the Mustangs' record to 4-0 for the first place spot in the conference. (Photo from

Two Lambda Pi Eta members, Jackie Cooper and Kim Hahr (l-r), stepped up to help Business Communication faculty members Chris Noya and Chip Rouse cover the Majors and Minors Fair on Sept. 22. The two students answered questions from those curious about the major and interacted with a number of students still trying to decide on a major. Lambda Pi Eta students perform service to the university and to the department as part of their membership. Thank you, ladies!
