Communication News

The Business Communication First-Year Seminar students took some time away from campus on Friday, Sept. 16, to explore Oriole Park at Camden Yards with a "behind-the-scenes" tour and a meet and greet with four BizComm alums who work for the Orioles: Tim Pyle, Emily Maranto, Alex Parker, and Christina Zizos.

The tour included a visit to Babe Ruth's statue, a stop in the Orioles' dugout, a stint in the Press Box, and some time on the field itself, among other things. Students learned about careers with the Orioles from their alums working with the team, and then walked over to the Inner Harbor for a cruise on the Harbor and Bay. They learned about the Harbor's development and enjoyed the sun and fresh air. A project focusing on branding will follow later in the semester.

Thank you to GPS intern and Business Communication senior Emma Ragon for this great interview with the new chair of the communication programs, Dr. Nadene Vevea. Emma's interview and blog post can be found here.

Senior Emma Ragon (in the photo on the right) is in the midst of yet another internship -- this time, she is working under the direction of Cynthia Madden, communications manager for Stevenson's Graduate and Professional School Admissions team. Emma is working on content development for a new graduate audience, researching and writing content for the GPS site. She is relying on strong communication skills, both written and oral, for interviews, composition, and editing. Her work as a former Villager editor-in-chief comes in handy for this internship!

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!
