On September 6, 2018, the
Business Honors students attended an all-cohort meeting to review program
updates and upcoming events.
This semester’s Business Honors all-cohort meeting started
with presentations by Dean Robert Camp and Assistant Dean, Center for Leadership and Student Success, Kara Romance. They reminded students to stay
engaged and make the most of the opportunities that they will be presented as
members of the Business Honors program. Professor Joseph Rosendale then introduced this
year’s Common Reader: “Big Potential: How Transforming the Pursuit of Success
Raises Our Achievement, Happiness, and Well-Being” by Shawn Achor.
Selected members from each cohort
then shared their experiences from recent business honors trips: Pittsburgh,
Washington D.C., New York City, and India. Not only did participating in these
trips provide students with an alternative perspective, but it also allowed them
to build connections with business professionals.
To conclude the evening, the freshman cohort elected
their cohort leaders to be Shelby Lowery and Rebecca Shellenbarger. The
freshman cohort also participated in a team building activity, which consisted
of constructing the tallest standing tower using only newspaper and duct tape. The
results were close, but in the end, the group of Jack Steve, Sean Martin, Nick
Pammer, and Mike Mehalic won the challenge.
