Students in the College of Business were very busy this spring participating in exciting events and activities. Here are some of the highlights.
Entertainment Management Students Volunteer at Super Bowl 50
A group of Entertainment Management students got the experience of a lifetime this February when they participated in pre-game and post-game events at Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco.
Students Visit Ireland over Spring Break
After spending the first half of the semester learning about Irish culture, business, and history, College of Business students had the chance to visit Ireland over spring break. The group visited companies including MetLife and MasterCard, and cultural sites like Trinity College and the Cliffs of Moher.
Marketing Club raises $1,000 for Convoy of Hope
The Marketing Club held their annual Hope on Wheels Car Show, benefiting Convoy of Hope, on April 23. This student-run event is one of the highlights of the group’s year.
“For me, this is the best thing we do as a club. I think part of the point of college is to give back while you are there, and hopefully carry that with you after you leave, “states Hannah Moore Marketing Club President. “Working with Convoy of Hope is great because of how much they can get done with so little. For example each $10 donation feeds a child overseas for an entire month. This means every $25 registration for the car show feeds two and a half kids for an entire month! This year we were able to donate $1,000 to Convoy, feeding 100 kids who would have otherwise gone hungry.”
Faculty advisors for the Marketing Club are James Hoovens and Dr. Alex Hamwi.
Students Recognized at Spring Awards Banquet
Each spring the College of Business (COB) leadership team including the Dean, Associate Deans, Department Heads and faculty select recipients for the top honors in the college. Students are selected for awards from a variety of criteria including academic achievement, dedication to the public affairs mission, and dedication inside and outside of the classroom, with some awards requiring a personal essay.
