Communication News

Business Communication grad Michelle Larkin (Stevenson University class of 2014) writes that she has accepted a new job at Disney. Currently an event coordinator at Walt Disney World, Michelle will be joining the Corporate Alliance team "supporting runDisney and all its sponsorship partners. And when there's a race weekend in California in two weeks, what would be the logical first assignment? The Disneyland Half Marathon, of course!" 

According to Disney's website, the Corporate Alliance team works with a variety of companies so that all parties can mutually benefit each other "by using the other companies' abilities and strength." Congratulations, Michelle! Here she is in a photo with Minnie Mouse in Disney World.

We recently heard from junior Lauren Kiper, who was especially enthused about her summer experience. She writes: "This summer I have been working at Medifast in their marketing department alongside [BizComm alum] Samantha Perillo! The internship is titled "College Brand Ambassador" and has allowed me to work in the marketing department where I have been writing blog posts and creating many design advertisements. In addition, I market for Medifast at the Inner Harbor every Sunday morning at their Waterfront Wellness partnership. I have officially fallen in love with marketing and advertising!" Congratulations, Lauren, on such a wildly productive summer.
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)
