Professional

Business Council has members that are pursuing a wide range of degrees and therefore the Council takes an all-encompassing approach in order to advance one another’s professionalism. The Council plans events that include resume critiques, internship workshops, and frequent events with our Corporate Partners.

Our Corporate Partners are integral to each semester for the Council as our fun, engaging events are great opportunities for our members to network and get to know on-campus recruiters. Also, with our Corporate Partners spanning across a wide range of industries, our members are able to gain valuable insights into a multitude of different fields.

Service

Each semester, Business Council prides itself on giving back to the community through a variety of events. Throughout the semester, we volunteer in the community and raise funds for a chosen charity.

During the fall semester, Business Council hosts our annual Golf Outing.  This is a great opportunity for us to raise funds for the Hedge Funds Care, while also spending an afternoon golfing with our Corporate Partners and Alumni.  We pride ourselves for our various large events that impact the Champaign community including IMPACT Day, A Mother's Touch, and College of Business Best Dance Crew. 

Social

At the core of Business Council, we are truly a family. The relationships formed during our college years last a lifetime as we continue to help one another achieve success. Through the events we plan each semester our members form meaningful friendships that makes Business Council the organization that it is. 

Business Council enjoys going on adventures together around Champaign, like our fall trip to  Curtis Apple Orchard, and trying our favorite restaurants around town. During the Spring 2016 semester, we took a trip to St. Louis, where our members were able to enjoy the St. Louis Zoo and famous St. Louis Arch.
