College of Business to host Business-Palooza
On Oct. 22, Raj Soin College of Business will be hosting Business-Palooza, a fair intended to promote majors and minors in business to undergraduate students who are undecided or have majors in other fields.
Business-Palooza will provide information tables for each of the ten undergraduate majors within the college of business as well as information on the student clubs, which are open to any student on campus.
There will also be free pizza and a drawing for a $500 scholarship that can be applied to any major or minor within the College of Business.
According to Monica Snow, director of marketing business and international relations, the event provides students with information about the marketability of a business major or minor in their chosen field.
“I think that we’re all here to serve our students,” said Snow. “And no matter what your major is going to be, if you’re an English major or a Mechanical Engineering major, we want to help students across the university to get a broader skill set.”
Amanda Spencer, assistant director of academic advising and enrollment management, also believes that having a major or minor in business will help students in their careers.
“I think for anyone that wants to pair it up with their career, it could help with general knowledge,” said Spencer. “Everybody at some point in time is going to need to get a loan, whether it’s for a mortgage, a car or retirement.”
The event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the lobby of Rike Hall.
