Business Scholars a rigoorous program, but we want you to have a little fun too. Each year, scholars and faculty go on outings to sporting events like Cubs and Sox baseball games or head down the street to the United Center to watch the BlackHawks. They also get together in Student Center East for a bowling party. It's a great way to build friendship among the cohort and get to know your professors better.
Company visits give scholars the opportunity to make valuable industry connections as well as see the inner workings of companies. Seeing a work environment up close and meeting those who spend their days there can help you determine the best path for your own career. Talk to new hires and experienced staff members and see what the office layout is like.
