USU Business Students Invite Community To Watch USU-BYU Game In Logan
Business Week at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business to feature speakers, a golf tourney, relay race and football party
Students from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business are hoping that football history will repeat itself Friday, Sept. 30, at the Nelson Fieldhouse at Utah State University.
The students, organizers of Business Week, are inviting everyone to come to the Fieldhouse at 6 p.m. to watch the USU vs. BYU football game and they are promising “food, fun and football” and hoping for a USU victory. The festivities will be the last event of the Huntsman School’s annual Business Week that starts on Sept. 23.
Eric Schulz, the co-director of strategic marketing at the Huntsman School of Business, said this year’s Business Week activities are designed to engage the students and help them interact and network with alumni and business professionals.
“The whole week will be fun and exciting for all the students, alumni, faculty and friends who choose to get involved,” said Schulz. “And we’re planning on wrapping up the week’s events with a repeat of last year’s big win over BYU.”
Business Week 2011 kicks off Friday, Sept. 23, at 10 a.m., with the Huntsman School Charity Golf Tournament at the Logan River Golf Course, giving students and alumni the opportunity to network on the course or at lunch, plus the chance to win prizes.
The Last Dash Relay takes place Tuesday, Sept. 27, with a start time of 5:30 p.m. Proceeds from the Business Week golf tournament and race will go to fund cancer research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Online registration is now open for both events.
The Dean’s office hosts “Dogs with the Dean’s” at noon Tuesday, Sept. 27. Dean Douglas D. Anderson and associate deans Ken Snyder and Jef Doyle will be serving students and alumni hot dogs, chips and drinks on the patio outside the George S. Eccles Business Building.
The Dean’s Convocation, held in the George S. Eccles Business Building Wednesday, Sept. 28, will feature Dell Loy and Lynette Hansen, the owners of Wasatch Property Management.
