Congratulations to the many BizComms who participated in Stevenson's annual Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. Students in Lambda Pi Eta anchored the delegation, but students in the major also participated on teams from the SGA, Wild Stang Radio, Phi Sigma Sigma, MAP, and lots of other teams. Professor Stephanie Verni was a good sport when she was "jailed," and Sydney Rebechi and Allie Nelson paused in their laps for a cute duet. Thanks to all who turned out for the terrific event!

He offered some tips to the interns to make networking easier, helping them see the possibilities of growing from good to better to best.
With such heavy reliance on their mobile technologies, the students need to learn to develop stronger interpersonal skills to serve them in face-to-face networking events. The guest speaker provided them with methods of working a room with politeness and charm.
