Communication News

The Business Communication First-Year Seminar students listen intently to Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and Professor Stephanie Verni talk to them about the importance of their personal brand. The group is preparing for an outing to Oriole Park at Camden Yards where they will enjoy a "behind the scenes" tour and a meeting with the community relations folks there. After that, they will take a cruise in the Chesapeake Bay, departing from the Baltimore Harbor, and then later in the semester, they will complete a project on Baltimore's brand. The year has certainly begun with energy and excitement!

Senior Savannah Lawrence is already enjoying her second internship -- this time as a writer/researcher with Baltimore's Vegetarian Resource Group. The VRG is a non-profit that works with mainstream businesses and organizations to make it easier for those who want to live a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle to do so. The organization provides assistance to consumers, education of health professionals, and food service outreach. Savannah is researching and writing articles for the Vegetarian Journal and the organization's blog, among other things. Here, second from left, she poses with another intern, Alicia Hückmann, and her supervisors, Debra Wasserman and Charles Stahler.

Here's a shout out to 2015 Business Communication graduate Jen Rosenbloom, who recently relocated to West Palm Beach, Florida, in order to fulfill a dream of southern living. She has taken on a job as a national account manager at Wells Pharmacy Network, "a privately held nationwide compounding pharmacy specializing in wellness, anti-aging, weight management, urology, ophthalmology, and veterinary compounding solutions," according to its website. Jen's solid interpersonal and communication skills tipped the scales in her favor! In the photo, Jen is shown on the left during her internship with Carefirst Blue Cross/Blue Shield.

Members of the Faculty in the Halls program, including three Business Communication faculty members, were on hand to help meet and greet the first-year students as they moved in to Western Run, Patapsco, and Susquehanna Halls on August 25. From left, the Faculty in the Halls pictured included Chip Rouse (Business Communication), Chris Noya (Business Communication), Laurel Moody (Nursing), Romas Laskauskas (Business Administration), Leeanne Bell McManus (Business Communication), and Art Fifer (Information Technology). The group spent the day welcoming parents and first-year students, explaining the Faculty in the Halls program, and handing out chocolate candy to the newest members of the SU community. At right, mentors Noya and Moody greet families as they move in to Patapsco Hall, and offer some information about the Faculty in the Halls program.

A great big thank you to all of the students who volunteered to help during first-year student move-in on Thursday, August 25. From unloading minivans to wheeling loaded carts into the residence halls, BizComms were busy lending a hand to the new SU families. Here, Julia Cooke and Kaitlin Kirkwood work in Western Run Hall alongside Christine Favatta. Great job, everyone!
