Each year, the Undergraduate Business Council coordinates the largest student-run event at the Foster School each May. Foster Business Week is made up of individual events– from speakers to barbeques to awareness events– all put on by Foster clubs and organizations in order to raise awareness of the business school on campus, and to celebrate our Foster community.
This year, Michelle Choe won the FBW Theme Contest with her submission of ”Work it Harder, Make it Better, Do it FOSTER, Makes us Stronger” and the planning kept rolling from there. By the time the week was over, events included: Musical Chairs Tournament sponsored by ABBS; the 2nd Annual Ethics Case Competition sponsored by MUSH and UBC; the Spring Cruise sponsored by AKPsi; Salsa Dance Lessons sponsored by HBSA; Sales Career Fair sponsored by USC and the always popular Foster Pub Crawl on the Ave sponsored by UBC.
This was the last year that the annual BizBQ was held at Balmer Hall, due to the building’s scheduled demolition in the Fall. Undergraduate Programs Office staff flipped burgers and veggie burgers for the 12th year in a row, and all of those burgers fed over 450 people in two hours– including some of the construction workers who are completing the new Paccar Hall!
The week was a huge success, and plans are already under way for Foster Business Week 2011!
