Communication News

BizComm senior Shane Messick has written the latest "Words from the Wise" admission blog post about sharing space in the residence halls. Shane's advice to new students includes information about the housing contract, some tips for negotiating a comfortable living space, and help for dealing with roommate conflicts. The Business Communication department appreciates Shane's excellent writing and advice! (Photo from Shane's admission's blog)



Look who's starring in the latest YouTube video from Stevenson University: BizComm alum Kelsey Spriggs (May, 2015).  Kelsey talks on camera about her coursework in the major and the way her classes propelled her into a career in event planning and marketing. You can watch her video here.

Congratulations to the 20 Business communication interns who have secured internships for the fall. These juniors and seniors have prepared themselves well to start working as soon as classes begin.

Congratulations to Enrique (Ricky) Sanchez '98 and Andy Welling '03, two BizComm alums who will be inducted in the second class of the Stevenson University Athletics Hall of Fame, along with five other alumni.

According to Gomustangsports, Ricky was a two-sport athlete, playing men’s soccer and men’s lacrosse. The men’s lacrosse team annually awards the Ricky Sanchez Best Midfielder Award. In soccer, he was a two-year team captain and most valuable player. After he graduated, he stayed on to serve as an admissions counselor, an assistant coach, and the sports information director. In the photo (at center) he is shown at a recent golf outing with soccer coaches Graeme Millar and John Plevyak.


Andy played four seasons for the baseball team, the first baseball student-athlete to play four years after playing in 29 games during the team’s inaugural season in 2000. He was a two-time American Baseball Coaches Association All-Region selection and two-time team most valuable player as a junior and senior. He is still ranked among the top-10 in school history in 14 categories, including the record for RBIs with 124.

Congratulations to all of the inductees!
