The School of Business offers ample opportunities for students to participate in organizations that enrich their academic experience. Student clubs generally have an academic area of focus, but also offer leadership, professional networking, and social opportunities. While each group has a faculty advisor, the clubs are student led.

The Network is a student-directed organization that seeks to help students establish and build their professional network, regardless of major. Through its meetings, events, and activities, the Network seeks to network business students to each other, other campus constituencies, local business professionals and organizations, alumni, and the community at large. We are particularly interested in helping transfer and commuting students connect with the broader campus community. Active members of the Network have myriad opportunities to develop or enhance their leadership and community service profiles; this helps students build a competitive resume. Interested students should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive information about upcoming meetings and events.

This association is intended to serve a diverse population and is open to any and all students who have a genuine interest in succeeding in business.
