Congratulations to Business Communication graduate Stephanie Sufczynski, class of 2010, who recently received her Master's degree in Higher Education with a secondary concentration in Student Development and Affairs from Drexel University in Philadelphia. She writes, "I developed a study on the effects of student involvement in co-curricular clubs and organizations on self-confidence levels. The outcomes of the survey showed a positive correlation between involvement in co-curricular activities and gaining more self-confidence as students from freshmen to senior status." Stephanie's involvement in student government during her years at Stevenson University stirred her interest in this field. Stephanie currently works at Johns Hopkind University. Way to go, Stephanie!
