Colby received the recognition as a collegiate basketball student-athlete who also excelled in academics during the past season.

Colby appeared in every game for the Mustangs during the past season. He ranked third on the team in points per game and led the team with 70 three-pointers and a 42.9 three-point shooting percentage.

To be named to the Honors Court, a student-athlete must meet academic criteria including a GPA of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of the 2013-14 academic year, and be a junior or senior.

Congratulations, Colby!

Another Business Communication OWL, rising senior Annie McCoach, has contributed a blog posting to the Admissions News and events summer series space, "Words from the Wise."  She advocates getting involved in interesting clubs and organizations in order to remain engaged on campus, meet new friends, and expand your horizons. You can read Annie's blog post here. Here she is seen (seated) in one of her campus jobs with Morgan Somerville, director of student engagement. Congratulations, Annie, on a great post!

Congratulations to Business Communication graduate Stephanie Sufczynski, class of 2010, who recently received her Master's degree in Higher Education with a secondary concentration in Student Development and Affairs from Drexel University in Philadelphia. She writes, "I developed a study on the effects of student involvement in co-curricular clubs and organizations on self-confidence levels. The outcomes of the survey showed a positive correlation between involvement in co-curricular activities and gaining more self-confidence as students from freshmen to senior status."  Stephanie's involvement in student government during her years at Stevenson University stirred her interest in this field. Stephanie currently works at Johns Hopkind University. Way to go, Stephanie! (Photo from Stephanie's LinkedIn page)

He writes, "I have recently been employed in the marketing department of a company called All Risks Insurance.  Although I have only been a part of the company for a week or so, I feel as if it is a great fit for me." Nick joins several BizComms already working at All Risks under the able mentorship of Stu Jacobs. Thanks for checking in, Nick! Continued success in your career.
