Campus is buzzing again as Saint Mary's College Undergraduate Students dive back into the classes, reconnect with friends and engage in extracurricular activities. On Wednesday, August 31st, hundreds of new students were drawn to free barbecue but stuck around for the abundance of involvement opportunities. Among the 50+ Saint Mary's College clubs and organizations were three groups from the School of Economics and Business Administration (SEBA): the Accounting Club, the American Marketing Association (AMA) Chapter and the Business Club.
The involvement fair was a great way for current club representatives to engage with new students on campus and tell them more about their organization and SEBA. Elizabeth Novotny, a senior and co-president of AMA, said that the location of the event and placement of tables around Wednesday's barbecue increased engagement at the event and yielded a lot more interest. The AMA chapter at Saint Mary's College also plans to recruit new members at their upcoming corporate events.
At the Accounting Club table new students were able to talk to a true SEBA success story, Laurie Klemens. Laurie is just entering her senior year, and because Virginia Smith's encouragement and guidance that led Laurie to participate in Deliotte summer leadership program as a sophomore, go on to get a junior year internship, and as a result Laurie recently received a job offer for next fall upon completion of her degree. To meet more members of the Accounting Club, join them at Meet the Firms on Wednesday, September 21st at 6:00 pm at the Soda Center.
