You can help support students in their efforts to learn, graduate, and succeed with the Business Student Success Center!
The Business Student Success Center offers free tutoring, professional development workshops, club grants, awards, career development opportunities, and so much more to students in the College of Business.
Free Business Tutoring
Located in Glenn 202, the success center offers students a professional space to work in, along with free tutoring for students in need. Your gift will help tutors provide assistance outside the classroom for difficult subjects that often require hands-on help.
“I got an F on my first accounting exam and I was freaked out because I didn’t want to fail the class. You always hear how hard it is, so I started coming in to tutoring and working through the problems. The next exam I got a C, and the last two I got A’s. I ended up getting a B in the class.” – Business Marketing Major, class of 2018
Professional Development Workshops
Each semester a variety of workshops are offered and are designed to provide students with important opportunities and skills that aid in their personal and professional development. Some of the workshops include Salary Negotiation, How to Excel (basic and advanced levels), Are You LinkedIn?, Powerful Presentations, and the Dress for Success Business Fashion Show. Your gift can help offer more workshops per semester, and include more important topics for students to explore.
Professional Attire Fund
As business students move toward graduation they find themselves confronted with situations that require professional business attire. Whether applying for their first job after college or presenting at a conference, students with limited means may find it difficult to afford professional clothing. Your gift will provide these deserving students with the funds they need to put their best foot forward.
“The Professional Attire Fund has been an essential part of attaining some of my goals. Not only have I been able to utilize my professional attire on summer internship interviews, but I am fully prepared for other job possibilities and post-college opportunities. I have utilized my attire for formal meetings and was careful to choose styles that I knew would outlast trends. I plan to utilize my attire for many years to come! As a student who is fully independent financially, this was something I could have never done. I’m very appreciative.” – Miliah Haslerig, finance major
Special Activity Club Grant
Occasionally student clubs need a little extra support to add additional value to their experience. Your gift can enable student clubs to get funding to participate in national competitions, implement special activities that involve other clubs or organizations, facilitate the academic, personal, or professional growth of its members, or expose them to current trends in their field of study.
Make your gift count double thanks to the generous support of alumna Marti Sutton ('92), who is matching gifts up to $5,000 again this year!
