Business Communication News

First-year students in the Business Communication department are planning their design for this year's Lego Challenge to be held on Friday, Nov. 7, in the Owings Mills gymnasium.

In previous years, the BizComm students have done an excellent job in the Lego Challenge depicting, for instance, various trips that they have gone on with their class: Washington D.C. and Annapolis. The photograph above is their vision of Annapolis.

The Lego Challenge is sponsored by the Office of Career Services and Dr. Kevin J. Manning, Stevenson's president.

Starting in the fall of 2015, the Business Communication department will begin its first semester of a new master's program in Communication Studies. The innovative accelerated M.S. in Communication Studies is designed for those who want to enhance communication competencies in order to communicate more effectively both professionally and personally.

The curriculum covers the major areas of communication (Interpersonal, Intercultural, Organizational, Nonverbal, Conflict Resolution, Samll Group, Rhetorical and Speech) and integrates each into the presentation of a final project through a capstone experience or thesis. The graduates of this program will be able to rely on their communication skills to provide resolutions across various cultural, social and business settings.

The Master's Degree is a 36-credit-hour program that can be completed entirely online in 8-week sessions with the exception of the capstone project or master's thesis.

Here, Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, who will teach in the Master's program, works with a student on his online progress.

If you have any questions or are interested in the M.S in Communication Studies, please contact Chip Rouse or pick up a flyer in the BizComm hallway.

Students in this fall semester's Event Planning and Publicity class planned and organized Stevenson University's first Color Run with proceeds to benefit Baltimore' House of Ruth. The students had to find food vendors, solicit participants, plan and sign the course, collect prizes, and ask for volunteers along with creating awareness around campus for the event.

The House of Ruth is a home for women and children who have been abused and need a safe place to stay. Through the registration fees and donations, the class raised over $600. A representative from the House of Ruth was on hand at the race to accept the donation.

The event planning class joined some of their volunteers for the photograph on the left. Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and two students finish the Color Run in the photo on the right.

Senior Samantha Perillo, the libero on Stevenson University's volleyball team, was one of two seniors celebrated during Senior Night on Oct. 22. The team grabbed a 3-0 win against Arcadia in a Commonwealth Conference game, and Stevenson (23-3, 7-0 MAC) hopes to maintain their perfect record since joining the Commonwealth conference two years ago. Perillo has one more conference game before advancing to the Commonwealth tournament. Here she is shown with members of her family on Senior Night.
