Communication News

Look who turned up at the 2016 SU Bull and Oyster Roast this year! Alums Lauren Humphries and Matt Liska checked in, updating us with information about their careers. Lauren is the marketing manager at the LUNGevity Foundation, the largest national lung cancer-focused nonprofit, and Matt works in IT for Johns Hopkins. Both were happy to reunite with lots of other alums and families in attendance and were equally happy to STAND for Stevenson.

A group of Business Communication students attended a workshop on March 7 conducted by Associate Professor Stephanie Verni about the development of an online portfolio using WordPress. The workshop was tailored to the coursework and activities of the major, and the participating students came away with a portfolio they can further develop as they progress toward graduation.

Congratulations to BizComm junior Corrin Harris, who has had her first work published at the Odyssey Online, a "social content platform that discovers and shares a chorus of millennial voices, amplified organically through social media," according to the Odyssey website.  Writers choose their own content, and Odyssey provides the tools and feedback. Corrin's article, titled "11 signs you're actually in a long-term relationship with the beach," humorously examines the indicators of a love affair with all that is sand and surf. You can read the full article here. (Photo from Corrin Harris)

The two Faculty in the Halls mentors for Western Run Hall, Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse, were thrilled with the turnout of 54 students who participated in the residence hall's "Citation Treasure Hunt" along with two popular members of the library staff responsible for creating the event for the residents. Librarians Sara Godbee and Rebecca Pad staffed the game tables along with Tess Gillis, Academic Integrity Officer, and a student helper. Residents who completed the hunt were eligible for a raffle drawing for an Amazon gift card, or one from Dunkin' Donuts. Award-winning comment? "Who knew citations could be fun?"
