Communication News

Congratulations to Business Communication major Eddie Bennett, whose spoken word performance at the annual Stevenson University Founder's Day Talent Show on Oct. 3 won him first place! Eddie's moving performance stunned the audience and brought down the house. Fans might recall that Eddie's public speaking abilities also earned him a prize in the 2016 Oratorical Contest as well. Way to go, Eddie! (Photo from MAP Facebook page)

Word reached us from 2016 grad Conrad Ellis that he has relocated to Chicago, Illinois, and started a job at Lakeshore Sport and Fitness in the children’s programming department. His blog tells us a little more about his work that will rely heavily on his communication skills and background in athletics, as a former member of Stevenson's NCAA Div. III tennis team. While he was a student, he served as the departmental intern, and has since used those planning skills in his new position.

Congratulations, Conrad! The department looks forward to hearing more about your new career.

Senior Kaitlyn Rollyson (in the photo on the right) is enjoying her work in the area of event planning at Grow & Fortify, an organization that collaborates with and supports the Maryland Wineries Association, Brewers Association of Maryland, Maryland Distillers Guild, various breweries, wineries and other value-added agricultural startups, according to the organization's website. Kaitlyn works with vendors as Grow & Fortify plans and executes events to help promote Maryland wines, craft beers and spirits, under the supervision of Rebecca Dulka. Kaitlyn's love of event planning has propelled her to succeed in this internship.
Senior Emily Rosenthal has translated her love of history into an internship at the Carroll County Farm Museum, an educational site that seeks to foster “the preservation and proper appreciation of the rural culture of Carroll County and the spirit and the values which this culture typifies,” according to the website. Emily is working on the site's exhibits program, sifting through research and artifacts to bring a true experience to guests. Here, Emily (on the right) and her supervisor Stefanie Strosnider Basalik, the curator of the Carroll County Farm Museum, strike a pose near one of the displays.

Congratulations to the Business Communication First-year Seminar under the guidance of Dr. Nadene Vevea, associate dean of communication programs, for their amazing rendition of Oriole Park at Camden Yards that won the group first place in the 2016 Lego Challenge, tied with a biochemistry construction. The students had visited Camden Yards a week before for a behind-the-scenes tour and decided to reconstruct the ballpark and the warehouse to describe their ideas of Career Architecture. The ballpark construction was complete with lights, foul poles, a scoreboard, bleachers, an infield and an assortment of players. The Business Communication first-year students worked together in an all-out effort to pay attention to every detail, including images on the warehouse of the Business Communication alums who work for the Orioles and who met the students on the tour.

Congratulations to our comrades in the Film and Moving Image First-year Seminar who took second place in the competition as well!
