Welcome back, BizPanthers!
With the beginning of the school year, the College of Business is ready to celebrate new and returning students with “BizLife Welcome Home Week” at Florida International University (FIU).
“On your first trip to campus this week–or every day this week–BizPanthers should be sure to stop by the lobby of the College of Business Complex,” said Ileana Canizares (BBA ’12), student relations coordinator. “We have a week’s worth of information and fun for all business students and for those interested in learning more about FIU’s College of Business.”
This year, BizLife Welcome Home is being held for the entire first week of classes. Students can have an informal look at the college’s wide range of opportunities and enjoy reconnecting with friends in the CBC lobby from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday, August 26, 2013 through Friday, August 30.
Representatives from the business college’s 14 student organizations will have information tables with handouts and giveaways as will many of the college’s centers and student services departments such as Undergraduate Advising and Career Management Services.
BizLife Family Welcome Bash and other special events scheduled.
In addition to information tables and mingling all week long, special events in the CBC lobby include:
- On Monday at 2:00 p.m., snacks will be served.
- Tuesday is BizPanther Pride day. Students, staff and faculty are encouraged to wear FIU branded clothing.
- A BizLife Family Welcome Bash will be held on Thursday from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. with breakfast items served starting at 10:30 a.m. FIU’s mascot Roary will be at the event from 10:30-11:30 and Dean David R. Klock will be there to meet students from 11:00 – 11:30 a.m.
“Students should plan on stopping by often because there will be a different crowd every day,” Canizares said.
