Communication News

BizComm alum Matt Easter (2006) checked in with the department, letting us know of his recent relocation to the Netherlands. He plans on beginning study for a Master's degree, since graduate study in the country is very affordable. Matt's background in marketing, engineering and quality control gives him lots of options. He reports that he has just returned from a fabulous vacation in Croatia and continues to practice his Dutch. Keep in touch with us, Matt! (Photo from Facebook)

Alert: Stolen from Facebook! Look at these creative BizComm students and alums enjoying the Olympics together.  Clockwise from top left: Lauren Novsak, Corrin Harris, Emma Ragon, Megan Donahue, A.J. Grimm, and Lanie Swanhart. It's great to see our students full of fun and creativity.

Business Communication senior Savannah Lawrence, an avid runner who blogs about health and exercise (among other topics), was featured in an Aug. 9 Carroll County Times article, "Want to try another workout? Give running a go."  Savannah explains the merits of strength training for distance runners and the importance of connecting with other members of the running community.

Interestingly enough, the article's author is Amanda Oppenheim, a senior at Stevenson University. Read the article here. And interested readers and fans can read Savannah's blog here.

Dr. Kevin J. Manning, president of Stevenson University, awarded Chip Rouse, associate professor of Business Communication, the prestigious President's Medal at the university's Commencement ceremonies in May, 2016.

The President's Medal is conferred on a person whose life exemplifies the ideals and aspirations of Stevenson University, and whose service to the University is extraordinary in both scope and quality. The award especially noted the former Business Communication department chair's engagement with many aspects of the SU community. Here, Rouse wears the medal and displays the plaque she received. She joins fellow Business Communication faculty member Christine Noya as a recipient of the award.  (Photo courtesy of Sue Kenney)
