Dean's Message December 2021

Greetings from the Schmidthorst College of Business,

The end of the semester is almost upon us and with it has come a flurry of activity. Faculty members are preparing their final materials and the beautiful Maurer Center is full of students studying together.

The Schmidthorst College of Business held several exciting events in November. We hosted two SCoB Days, where prospective students and families enjoyed tours of the Maurer Center and had the opportunity to ask a panel of students about college life. The Dean’s Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion hosted a World Culture Expo where several international student organizations were invited to share their culture and food.

Our recently-launched Alumni & Friends Network is gaining traction. Recent graduate, Lauren Diehl, shares how the Network has benefited her professional life. We are excited to announce a Holiday Giveaway! Anyone who is signed up for the Alumni & Friends Network before to Jan. 1, 2022 will be entered into a drawing for SCoB swag. We hope to see you on the Network.

As the holidays approach, we invite you to read about how some of the holiday traditions celebrated by our international students in their home countries.

From all of us here at the Schmidthorst College of Business, we hope you have a joyful holiday season and a happy New Year!

Warm regards,
Dean Ray Braun ‘80
