Why did you decide to join BC?

Daniel: I am interested in transferring into the College of Business and I wanted join something that would bring me closer to the college. At the same time, I wanted to enjoy myself while being involved in the Illinois community.  

Jassiem: During our Business Honors Seminar, all of the business fraternities and Business Council came to present to us and I knew BC would be the right fit for me. It seemed the most professional, but at the same time it had a lot of social and service events which was important to me.

Jenn: After transferring into the College of Business, I wanted to get to know more business students to show me the ropes of the business school and figure out which classes to take.

What has been your favorite moment of BC so far?

Daniel: My favorite moment of BC was the celebration where everyone was cheering for us on our first day as new members.

Jassiem: My favorite moment was the first day, which was jam-packed with activities. The minute I got my call from Tony, then I got walked to our new member breakfast by Anan, and the barbeque later that day.

Jenn: Walking into the first day event and have everyone chant “Fall ‘16”, that’s when I knew I wanted to be in Business Council.

What are you studying and why?

Daniel: I am looking to transfer into the College of Business and hopefully major in marketing and management. I like being able to work with people, help people, and meet with people and I feel like I would be able to do that in a professional setting as a career by going into marketing and management.
