Lubar in the Residence Halls: Getting down to Business!

Last week, the Business Panthers LLC had a very special visit by some wonderful Undergraduate Business Advisors! In collaboration with the Undergraduate Business Advising Office, the Business Panthers LLC had an event in Sandburg's FLICKS that introduced the resources available to business students, highlighted the importance of academic advising in understanding a student's pathway to graduation, and allowed LLC residents to connect and interact with the Business Advisors.

In addition to a presentation on services of the Undergraduate Business Advising Office and the Career Services Center, the advisors prepared personal folders and scorecards for the LLC residents. These folders contained information from the presentation and other useful handouts. Also, these "scorecards" were personally made for each students as it tracked exactly what each resident needed depending on what major(s) they were interested in and what classes they are currently enrolled in.

But here in Business Panthers where we like to mix the living and the learning, the residents broke up into smaller groups so that they could have more personal one on one conversations with their business advisor. Also, we ended the event with a great "Pizza and Networking Social". Business Panthers LLC residents ate pizza and mingled with upperclassmen from Delta Sigma Pi - one of the largest co-ed business fraternities in the nation. This was a great opportunity for residents to talk to upperclassmen about UWM and business and for Delta Sigma to recruit some very ambitious and awesome students!
