Fall 2010 Rush Week Offers Student Opportunities
to Get Involved; Make the Most of College Career
Students new to the C. T. Bauer College of Business will have the chance to learn about ways to get involved on campus during Fall 2010 Rush Week on Tues., Aug. 31, through Thurs., Sept. 2, in Melcher Hall.
The Business Student Activities Rush Week is an opportunity for new and existing students to meet new people and find groups to serve with during their time at Bauer College. The event headlines the second week in a three-week themed campaign on MyBauerPride.com encouraging students to make the most of their collegiate experience.
Supply chain senior Stanford Huynh says getting involved has expanded his experiences at UH Bauer and prepared him for life after graduation in December.
“When I first got to Bauer, I didn’t know many people. I found the best way to get involved was to join organizations,” Huynh says. “You have people to study with, friends that can help you out and it’s really good for networking. Eventually everybody is going to find a job, and if you know a lot of people, they might help you land your first position.”
The event will showcase the 20 plus student organizations native to Bauer College plus specialty programs that cater to various fields of study.
Students say joining a group is an experience that pays dividends down the road.
“Getting involved with Bauer was a goldmine when I started here,” says accounting senior Roxana Rentaria. “I noticed that when you are in an organization you get to know a lot more people. Plus, when you go to career fairs, employers notice that you are not just involved in grades and work, but you are involved in the university.”
Rush Week will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday in the back drum of Melcher Hall. For more information, visit http://www.bauer.uh.edu/bsa/events.asp.
